And Why It's Worth Your Effort
Though a lengthy and time consuming application process (which we can help you with) it’s worth the effort. Here’s why:
  • Once certified, your business will be eligible for and can receive sole-source contracts. A sole-source contract means that your company wouldn’t have to bid, and the government could award you the contract based on your ability to fulfill it, and due to your 8(a) certification
  • These sole-source contracts can have a total value up to $4 million for services and up to $6.5 million for manufacturing
  • 8(a) certification limits competition to less than approximately 10,000 certified 8(a) businesses participating in the US
  • Your company would also be able to form joint ventures and teams to bid on contracts, making it easier for your 8(a) firm to perform on larger “prime” contracts. Your business would be able to learn the ropes from other more experienced businesses as well, providing mentoring opportunities to you

This impactful program that the government has to offer has a tedious and detailed application process. Our team of experts have processed many applications and maintain a 97% acceptance rate.
