STAFFORD, Va. (PRWEB) January 11, 2019
DeVilliers Technology Solutions LLC (DeVil-Tech), a systems and software engineering company, is honored to be certified as a participant in the Small Business Association (SBA) 8(a) Business Development Program. The certification comes after the SBA evaluated the minority and service-disabled Veteran-owned company on several factors including its financial records, business leadership, moral character, and its ability to succeed.
The federal government’s goal is to award at least five percent of all federal contracting dollars to small disadvantaged businesses each year and the 8(a) BD program is one way to achieve that goal. To level the playing field for small businesses, the government limits competition for certain contracts to small businesses. Those contracts are called “small business set-asides,” and they help small businesses compete for and win federal contracts. According to a report issued by the Congressional Research Service, a total of 3,421 8(a) firms were awarded more than $27.1 billion in federal contracts in the 2017 fiscal year.
“Receiving an 8(a) certification is a major strategic accomplishment for us,” says Dr. DeVilliers, Founder and President of DeVil-Tech, “It opens our company to many more business opportunities through the set-aside contracts, with direct awards up to $5 million a year. This gives us a competitive edge to leverage in the years to come."
DeVil-Tech now enters the nine-year small business development program. Not only will the program allow the company to compete for federal contracts, DeVil-Tech will also have access to a Business Opportunity Specialist to help navigate federal contracting, be able to form joint ventures with established businesses through the SBA's mentor-protégé program, and will receive management and technical assistance, including business training, counseling, marketing assistance, and high-level executive development.
