Policy 2.208 Small Business Subcontracting Plan (formerly known as Policy 2.208 Small Business Subcontracting Plan for RCUH Direct Projects) has been updated to include UH service-ordered projects.
Previously, the small business requirements for UH service-ordered projects were addressed under AP 8.295 – Small Business and Small Disadvantaged Business Programs, which has been abolished, and AP 8.290 – Requirements of Federally Funded Purchases, which has been revised. The changes, effective July 26, 2019, removed provisions regarding small business subcontracting plans for federally-funded projects, to be consistent with RP 12.207 and AP 12.203, which identify the UH Office of Research Services (ORS) and RCUH as providing oversight and administrative support for federally-funded projects.
Under the new Policy 2.208 Small Business Subcontracting Plan, the Director of ORS will approve subcontracting plans prepared by the Principal Investigator and reviewed by the Fiscal Administrator for UH service-ordered projects. Refer to Sections II. and III. of Policy 2.208 Small Business Subcontracting Plan, for additional details on when and how a plan should be filed.
Policy 2.208 Small Business Subcontracting Plan and its two referenced documents—Attachment 38 Subcontract/Purchase Order Expected to Exceed $150,000 Under a Federal Prime Contract Worksheet and the Business Classification Certification Statement—have also been updated to comply with the most recent FARs and CFRs.
