B. Needs and Uses

    Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 19.301 and the FAR clause at 
52.219-28, Post-Award Small Business Program Rerepresentation, 
implement the Small Business Administration's (SBA's) regulation at 13 
CFR 121.404(g), requiring that a concern that initially represented 
itself as small at the time of its initial offer must recertify its 
status as a small business under the following circumstances:
     Within thirty days of an approved contract novation;
     Within thirty days in the case of a merger or acquisition, 
where contract novation is not required; or
     Within 120 days prior to the end of the fifth year of a 
contract, and no more than 120 days prior to the exercise of any option 
thereafter.
    The contracting officer at his or her discretion, may also request 
the contractor to rerepresent its status as a small business for 
individual task or delivery orders.
    The implementation of SBA's regulation in FAR 19.301 and the FAR 
clause at 52.219-28 require that contractors rerepresent size status by 
updating their representations at the prime contract level in the 
Representations and Certifications section of the System for Award 
Management (SAM) and notifying the contracting officer that it has made 
the required update.
    The purpose of implementing small business rerepresentations in the 
FAR is to ensure that small business size status is accurately 
represented and reported over the life of long-term contracts. The FAR 
also provides for provisions designed to ensure more accurate reporting 
of size status for contracts that are novated, or performed by small 
businesses that have merged with or been acquired by another business.
