Washington D.C. (PRWEB) November 26, 2014
US Federal Contractor Registration is proud to announce that Verified Vendor EBS Security Inc. has been approved as a certified 8(a) Program participant as of October 2014. After waiting a couple months for the Small Business Administration (SBA) to process the paperwork. EBS Security Inc. was finally officially approved as a member of the 8(a) Business Program thanks to US Federal Contractor Registration and the registration assistance of Director of Case Management Jessica Summers. EBS Security Inc. is forecasted to be dominant 8(a) Federal Contractor competing for contracts in Armed and Unarmed Security, Body Guard Services, and Private Investigation Services.
Prior to the actual registration process, EBS Security Inc spoke with Acquisition Specialist Peter Lanore and conducted a Federal Marketplace Evaluation. One of the many stages of the Federal Marketplace Evaluation is discovering if a business qualifies for any federal set-aside programs. After discussing their options at full length, Peter soon discovered that EBS Security Inc would make a great candidate for the 8(a) Business Program. After assessing their business model, it was determined EBS Security Inc. would have a great chance at becoming approved for the 8(a) Program. Peter reviewed EBS Security Inc’s federal profile as a small, socially and economically disadvantaged business and came to the conclusion that the 8(a) Program would increase their chances at winning government contracts in the federal marketplace.
Benefits of the 8a Program
The 8(a) Business Development Program was created to help small disadvantaged businesses win federal government contracts. A business must be socially and economically disadvantaged in order to apply for this particular federal set-aside program. The 8(a) Program lasts for 9 years once a business has been certified, during which they are able to compete for eligible set-aside contracting opportunities. The benefits of the 8(a) Program are sole source selected contracts that have a contract ceiling of $6.5 million for manufacturing and $4 million for regular goods and services. Being a part of the 8(a) Program allows businesses to team up with other 8(a) participating businesses to work on larger prime contracts and awards that would normally be above the ceiling limit of normal 8(a) contracts.
