SBA 8A Certification
What is the SBA 8A Certification
SBA (8a) is a program by the United States Government(SBA) that provides assistance in the following areas:
Huge Federal budget to be spent in certified businesses
$34 Billion dollars annually are spend in certified 8A businesses
Only 6,500 businesses have currently completed the program, out of 24 million businesses in the United States.
According to public information, 5% of all federal spending is earmarked for 8(a) firms.
This is more than $4 million per year in federal spending per 8A company.
Reduce time to obtain the first federal sale
The SBA acts as a liaison with the 8(a) firm in order to help the 8(a) firms obtain federal contracts. This benefits the 8a firm in the reduction of time necessary to achieve its first federal sale. For most 8a firms the SBA will send out letters of introduction which help the 8a firm make initial contact with their targeted market.
Team up with other 8A companies in joint venture or protégé arrangement to have access to really large contracts. This is often done with large federal prime contractors. This helps expand the 8a companies knowledge on how the government works, allows the 8a firm to be awarded contracts they would not otherwise be able to win as well as helping to build the 8a firms federal performance history so that they can win large contacts without the 8a firm needing to partner in the future.
Due to the limited number of 8a firms and the fact that they are all small businesses 8a firms are able to receive better pricing than their non-8a small business peers.
