There are over 9,000 8(a) companies, yet nearly half of them never take advantage of this unique certification. Government contracting is at an all time high, and all agencies are struggling with meeting their 8(a) quotas. If you have the capability to perform a service the government is looking for, getting the contract awarded to your company is almost a guarantee. However, your experience tells you that it is easier said than done!
The problem is two-fold: (1) how do you find the right contract before it hits the street, and (2) how do you convince the contracting officer that your company is qualified to perform the work. This is where we come in.
How we help you maximize the benefit of your 8(a) certification
Our twenty-five years of experience with federal funding includes working for 8(a) companies in the Washington DC area for which we were successful in securing several set-aside contracts. Among them was a five-year $17 million contract with the U.S. Army providing engineering services. When the contract was awarded the company did not have the space or employees to support the project, and hired the staff after contract award. There are specific capabilities the government looks for in the target 8(a) company prior to sole source determination. This is where we come in.
The service we offer you is based on our solid twenty-five years of government contracting experience, and is comprised of five steps:
Learn about your company and the services you offer
Identify government agencies with contracts that are well suited for your services
Convince these agencies that your company is qualified to perform the requirements
Assist you with writing the proposal for the sole source set-aside
Staff the project as needed
For this service our fee is $5,000 per month and the initial consulting engagement is for a minimum of three months. We only work with companies that are serious about pursuing and winning government contracts, and we do not accept commission arrangements.
