8(a)/EDWOSB/GSA

Aneukor LLC is proud to be certified as a small, woman minority-owned, small disadvantaged business under the SBA 8(a)/SDB Business Development program.  With our 8(a), EDWOSB and soon to be GSA programs, we are able to help simplify the many contracting burdens you may encounter.  We also partner with many other GSA schedule holders to provide you with a wide array of products and services to meet your needs.

What are advantages of using 8(a) contractors for my requirements?

Contracts can be directly awarded to an 8(a) firm, under $3.5M for Services and $5.0M for Manufacturing, without much of the normal contracting process overheads:

  • A qualified 8(a) firm is considered to be a lock-tight sole source justification which means Justification & Approval (J&A) is not required for contract award per FAR 6.204, FAR 6.302-5(b)(4), and 15 U.S.C. 637
  • 8(a) contracts are one of the exceptions listed in FAR 5.202(a)(4), which waive the requirement to publish the synopses of contract actions for section 8(a) of the Small Business Act
  • Can continue to use same 8(a) firm for follow-on contracts per FAR 19.805-2(d).
  • 8(a) contracts can be issued much quicker than other processes, even IDIQ type task orders
  • Even over the $3.5M/$5M threshold, SBA may accept sole source if there is not a reasonable expectation that at least two eligible and responsible 8(a) firms will submit offers at a fair market price per FAR 19.805-1(b).

We can currently process orders utilizing the following methods:  8(a), EDWOSB, GSA, Government Credit Cards and Open Market.
