SBA 8(a) Certified
Our status as a Small Business Administration Certified 8(a) business provides several attractive government contracting options. Sole-source contracts, for instance, are a great contracting vehicle. They can usually be approved in a matter of days versus several months as is typical through the customary RFP process. All federal agencies have 8(a) small business programs and the Small Business Representative will understand how to guide procurement officials through the 8(a) contract program. Because the 8(a) program is a federal mandate, federal agencies get credit for the work they issue to a Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB) and certified 8(a) firms.
How the 8(a) Program Works
The 8(a) program is intended to benefit both the client as well as the contracting agency through mechanisms that ensure quality performance. Prior to acceptance into the program, the contractor is subjected to a rigorous review of its ownership, daily management, operations, experience and financial status. Only those contractors that can document disadvantaged business status and demonstrate the viability of the organization are accepted into the program. Once accepted, the contractor is required to provide the SBA with a detailed business plan that must be updated annually.
Upon acceptance, each contractor is assigned Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) codes based on the qualifications and experience of the company and key personnel. Performance of 8(a) contracts is then limited to those SIC codes. As a company gains experience and expertise, it may request additional codes from the SBA based on documentation of this experience.
Benefits of the 8(a) Program
  • Participants can receive sole-source contracts, up to a ceiling of $4 million for goods and services and $6.5 million for manufacturing.
  • Federal acquisition policies encourage Federal agencies to award a certain percentage of their contracts to SDBs. To speed up the award process, the SBA has signed Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs) with 25 Federal agencies allowing them to contract directly with certified 8(a) firms.
  • Recent changes permit 8(a) firms to form joint ventures and teams to bid on contracts. This enhances the ability of 8(a) firms to perform larger prime contracts and overcome the effects of contract bundling, the combining of two or more contracts together into one large contract.
SOLE-SOURCE CONTRACTING OPTIONS
  • Direct
  • IDIQ
  • BOA
 
Direct
Sole-Source Contract
  • Any federal agency can identify work especially suited for an 8(a) firm and can set-aside the project without advertising in FedBizOpps/Commerce Business Daily. This allows the federal agency to directly award a professional service contract to this 8(a) firm without lengthy contracting delays. Participants can receive sole-source contracts, up to a ceiling of $4 million for goods and services and $6.5 million for manufacturing.
If this option is chosen, the steps typically followed are:
  • The Government project manager or interested party identifies a statement of work, prepares a government estimate and earmarks funds
  • The agency chooses RevaComm to perform the work

An authorization to negotiate is obtained from the SBA by filling out a Small Business Coordination Record form. The interested party may consult with their small business program office and/or the contracting office in order to complete the Business Coordination Record or a Procurement Request Form, depending on the agency. The prepared contract documents must include the following statement: "Request procurement be made pursuant to Section 8(a) of the Small Business Act 15 U.S.C. 637(a) and in accordance with FAR 19.8."

  • Once the procurement request has been made, the SBA or the Contract Officer prepares an offer letter or a proposed project form (FAR 19.804-2).
  • After the offering information is received and processed by the SBA, the process returns to the contracting officer who submits the Scope of Work and Request for Quotation to RevaComm.
  • RevaComm submits its proposal and the package is evaluated and negotiated (if necessary) by the agency.
  • The contract is awarded.
IDIQ
Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity Contract

When an agency finds an 8(a) company that they would like to utilize on a regular basis, the agency might choose to award a sole-source IT Services IDIQ (Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity) contract. Preparation of this IDIQ is very cost-effective for the agency as it minimizes the length of time involved in contracting out individual task orders and it is not as costly and time-consuming to award as a competitive IDIQ. This type of contracting mechanism can be awarded very much like the sole-source contracts described above.

BOA
Basic Order Agreement
A Basic Order Agreement (BOA) can also be awarded on a sole-source basis under the 8(a) program. A BOA is a written instrument of understanding, negotiated between an agency, contracting activity, or contracting office and a contractor, that contains the following items:
  • Terms and clauses applying to future contracts (orders) between the parties during its term.
  • A description, as specific as practicable, of supplies or services to be provided.
  • Methods for pricing, issuing, and delivering future orders under the Basic Ordering Agreement.
