8(a) Business Development Program
The SBA can facilitate an agency direct award contract to iTech AG, up to a ceiling of $4 million. This can be achieved by following a three step process:
AGENCY DEFINES THE SCOPE OF THE REQUEST FOR ITECH AG
The Government Point of Contact (POC) develops a Statement of Work (SOW).
The POC prepares a cost estimate and obtains the necessary funding.
The PM selects iTech AG, an 8(a) certified disadvantaged small business, to execute the work.
SBA FACILITATES THE OFFER
The POC asks their Contracting Officer (CO) to prepare and submit an “Offer Letter” to iTech AG’s Business Opportunity Specialist, email@example.com.
SBA processes the “Offer Letter” and returns it to the agency within five business days.
The CO submits the SOW to iTech AG for response.
AGENCY AWARDS THE CONTRACT TO ITECH AG
iTech AG submits the proposal to be evaluated (and negotiated, if necessary) by the agency.
The contract is awarded to iTech AG.
