SBA 8(A) Sole Source Direct Award Program:
Infopact is an SBA certified 8(a) woman owned small business. Infopact’s participation in the SBA’s 8(a) program allows them to be eligible for sole source/ direct contracts of up to $4.5 million with any federal agency, without any competition, as defined by the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), thereby helping to reduce procurement lead times. This eligibility is provided under FAR Subpart 19.8, which governs the SBA’s 8(a) program. By utilizing the program’s direct award feature, federal agencies can save time and resources that would otherwise be spent on competitive bidding, while promoting small business participation in federal contracting, a key priority for the federal government. Through the 8(a) program, participating firms like Infopact receive technical assistance, mentoring, and training, helping them to develop their business capabilities and compete more effectively in the federal marketplace.
