DigitalSpec, a minority-owned Information Technology (IT), Strategy and Management consulting firm, has been accepted into the Small Disadvantage Business (SDB) and 8(a) program by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) through year 2019. The SBA 8(a) program helps minority and other disadvantaged businesses better compete for contracts in the Federal government. This certification allows DigitalSpec to receive business development assistance and to bid on contracts that are specifically set-aside for SBA 8(a) participants. DigitalSpec plans to work closely with the SBA to firmly establish itself in the federal market, while continuing to provide services to other public and private sector clients. This extraordinary benefit enables agency initiatives to get rapidly underway by streamlining the contract award process.
DigitalSpec’s President, Dr. Charles A. Dadoo, attributes the firm’s acceptance into this program as a result of excellence in service delivery, a quality foundation, performance driven results, and world class customer service of solutions developed over the past five years. “We are absolutely thrilled to be accepted into the SBA 8(a) program,” exclaimed Charles, “DigitalSpec creates innovative business solutions to transform government to make it more efficient, transparent, and build a new foundation for the 21st century. We are committed to the mission of the customer.”
Through the SBA 8(a) program, DigitalSpec can be awarded Federal government contracts of up to $3.5 million on a sole source (non-competitive) basis enabling federal initiatives to get rapidly underway. This extraordinary benefit of the 8(a) program streamlines the competitive acquisition process and empowers Federal program managers to define the scope of work and select the best 8(a) firm to perform the work while being assured that bonding, insurance and other legal requirements will be met.
