How can NextStep help federal buyers with our 8(a) contract vehicle?  

  • Contracts can be sole sourced, no competition required up to $4M.
  • Administrative time is reduced (faster awards).  Contracts can be awarded in days or weeks.
  • Reduces contract protests.
  • No competition reduces the paperwork required from technical POC’s prior to and after the award.
  • NextStep and Government customer can discuss technical and personnel requirements before and during contract preparation.
  • NextStep is required to perform 51% of the contract. This allows NextStep to add other companies if additional capabilities are required under a contract.
  • Federal contracting officers can achieve 8(a) contract requirements.
