Customer Information

The Agile Group’s Small Business Administration (SBA) Certified 8(a) status means that government agencies can contract with us using sole-source acquisition, approved in a matter of days.

For Federal Agencies

Federal agencies usually have an 8(a) or small business program representative to guide planners and engineers through the 8(a) contract program. Federal agencies get credit for the amount of work they issue to 8(a) firms.

How the Program Works

Certified 8(a) businesses go through rigorous review, document business status and demonstrate the viability of the organization. Each year, we provide the SBA with a detailed business plan.

The 8(a) sole source vehicle provides agencies a simplified and shortened acquisition procedure with:

  • Reduced decision cycle: an 8(a) sole source contract up to $3 million for goods and services and $5 million for manufacturing can be awarded within days.
  • Lowered administrative costs: procurement process and time is minimal.
  • Prices reflecting the best value: the agency negotiates with the firm directly.
  • Credit for promoting small business participation within agency.
  • Initiation of a contract with a simple, high-level statement of work.
