The Small Business Administration’s (SBA) 8(a) Business Development program offers small, disadvantaged businesses tremendous opportunities for sole source and limited competition contracts. During the program, participants can be awarded sole source contracts up to $4.5 million for goods and services ($7.5 million for manufacturing). But what does the contracting process entail and what should 8(a) contractors know to avoid mistakes?

Listen to Susan Moser, Partner and Leader of Cherry Bekaert’s Government Contracting practice and Eric Poppe, a Senior Manager in the Government Contracting practice discuss the 8(a) contracting process and sole source awards, including certified cost and pricing data to determine fair market price, preaward surveys and best practices.

If you haven’t already, catch up on other episodes in our podcast series discussing various aspects of the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) 8(a) Business Development Program:

In future 8(a) segments, we will discuss competitive contracts and the All Small Mentor Protégé Program.

Our Government Contractor Services group has an in-depth understanding of the 8(a) program and advises 8(a) government contractors through each step of the process to add value and anticipate ongoing opportunities. From the initial important decisions made in becoming an 8(a), to the first contract, to how the company is growing throughout the life of the program.
