The Small Business Administration's minority business 8(a) program was established to help small minority firms compete for federal contracts. The 8(a) contract vehicle offers federal government buyers the following advantages:
- Contracts can be sole sourced, no competition required up to $4M.
- Administrative time is reduced resulting in faster awards.
- Reduces paperwork.
- 8(a) companies are required to perform 51% of the contract. This allows us to partner with and add other companies if additional capabilities are required under a contract.
- Convenient option to meet the agencies' commitment to small, minority and disadvantaged business development goals.
