The better informed you are about their responsibilities the better decisions you can make during your tenure in the program.
First let’s start with where this information is obtained from. Every Agency has regulations that tell them what their responsibilities and obligations are. The Small Business Administration is no different. Their regulations are called Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) and are available to download from their website. I would suggest that you download the SOP and keep it on hand during your time in the program.
