Judge: SBA Must Disclose Contract Recipients

By Eileen Kennedy

A California federal judge has ruled against the U.S. Small Business Administration and required it to reveal what companies have received small business contracts for 2005 and 2006.

The American Small Business League brought the lawsuit, which it filed under the Freedom of Information Act, and the judge ruled that the SBA has two weeks to provide the information to the league.

This is the fourth federal lawsuit the league has won against the SBA, according to the league. The league said once the information is public, it will show that the administration has inflated the federal small business contracting reports for 2005 and 2006 by including billions of dollars in contracts to Fortune 500 corporations.

The league is also preparing its fifth lawsuit against the SBA for refusing to release the emails of Mike Stamler, director of the SBA’s press office. The league believes the emails will show that the SBA launched a national campaign to stop prominent media outlets from running stories about fraud and abuse in the agency’s small business contracting programs.
