DOD contracts totaled about 160 million and included six contracts that were subject to the subcontracting provisions of the Small Business Act and the Federal Acquisition Regulation FAR. However, DOD did not use small disadvantaged advertising firms as prime contractors and made only minimal use of small disadvantaged advertising firms as subcontractors.
