SBA programs to help the government meet its goal of awarding at least 23% of contract dollars to small businesses.

As a Contracting / Purchasing Officer, Program / Project Manager or Task Lead, you can help socially and economically disadvantaged, disabled veterans and historically underutilized businesses get their fair share of contracting opportunities and meet your organization’s mandated small business goals.

SBA

8(a)​ Small Disadvantaged Business

The federal government’s goal is to award five percent (5%) of all prime and subcontracting dollars to small disadvantaged businesses each year.

To help meet that goal, you can make sole-source awards for businesses that participate in the 8(a) Business Development program, like Advent Services.

Per federal regulations (13 CFR 124.502), you can award a sole-source 8(a) contract if:

  • You determine that the qualified small business is responsible
  • The resulting contract can be awarded at a fair market price
  • The government estimate doesn’t exceed $7 million for manufacturing requirements or $4 million for all other requirements

HUBZone​ Historically Underutilized Business Zones

The federal government’s goal is to award three percent (3%) of all prime and subcontracting dollars to businesses in the HUBZone program each year.

To help meet that goal, you can make set-aside or sole-source awards for businesses that participate in the HUBZone program, like Advent Services.

Per federal regulations (48 CFR 19.1306), you can award a sole-source HUBZone contract if:

  • You do not have reasonable expectation that two or more qualified HUBZone small businesses will submit offers
  • You determine that the qualified HUBZone small business is responsible
  • The resulting contract can be awarded at a fair market price
  • The government estimate doesn’t exceed $7 million for manufacturing requirements or $4 million for all other requirements

  • You can also create set-asides for specific orders within Multiple Award Contracts that were awarded through full and open competition

Benefits:

  • Sole source contracts are usually approved in a matter of days.
  • ​Federal Agencies with a  Small Business Program  will understand how to guide their contracting officers, planners and engineers through the sole source contract program.
  • ​Because the HUBZone program is a federal mandate, Federal Agencies get credit for the amount of work they issue to an 8(a), Disadvantaged Business, and Small Business.

In the case of Advent, credits from any contracts can be applied simultaneously to the Small Disadvantaged, HUBZone, SDVOSB and Small Business program goals.

At  Advent we strive to work cooperatively with our clients, focus on their needs and develop best-value solutions through our expertise in Systems & Software Engineering, Cybersecurity, Information Technology Support & Professional Services.

As an up-and-coming small business, we are aggressively looking to grow, and exploring other service/geographical areas is something we are actively pursuing.

We look forward to working together in helping your federal clients satisfy their requirements while providing Advent with the opportunity to grow and be a success story in the 8(a) and HUBZone programs.
