SBA Loses Legal Battle Over PR Contract

By Staff
November 29, 2010

The Small Business Administration (SBA) has lost a Freedom of information Act lawsuit, the American Small Business League (ASBL) reported Monday in a news release.

The suit was filed by the ASBL after the SBA did not turn over informantion on public relations contracts awarded by the the agency to APCO Worldwide Inc. In once case, ASBL said, the SBA paid $30,000 for a one-day meeting with APCO executives.

The ASBL alleges that the SBA hires consultants to help obscure the diversion of billions of dollars in federal small-business contracts to Fortune 500 firms and other large businesses in the world.

In winning the lawsuit, the ASBL said, the SBA must turn over complete copies of the public relations contracts.
