Business Case for Acquiring an SBA Small Business Designation (8(a), HUBZone)

The 8(a) program can be a valuable tool for experienced socially and economically disadvantaged small business owners, who have already been in business for at least two years or more, and are interested in expanding their footprint in the federal marketplace. The 8(a) program offers unique and valuable business assistance. The 8(a) certification does not guarantee contract awards but it is a dynamic tool to pursue and capture new opportunity from the government.

Certified firms in the 8(a) program can:

  • Efficiently compete and receive set-aside and sole-source contracts
  • Receive one-on-one business development assistance for their nine-year term from dedicated Business Opportunity Specialists focused on helping firms grow and accomplish their business objectives
  • Pursue opportunity for mentorship from experienced and technically capable firms through the SBA Mentor-Protégé program
  • Connect with procurement and compliance experts who understand regulations in the context of business growth, finance, and government contracting
  • Pursue joint ventures with established businesses to increase capacity
  • Qualify to receive federal surplus property on a priority basis

The 8(a) certification qualifies your business as eligible to compete for the program’s sole-source and competitive set-aside contracts. The government authorizes sole-source contracts to 8(a) participants for up to $7.5 million for acquisitions assigned manufacturing North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes and $4.5 million for all other acquisitions. Entity-owned 8(a) program participants are eligible for sole-source contracts above these thresholds, but the Department of Defense requires approval of a formal justification if the 8(a) sole-source contract exceeds $100 million; all other federal agencies require approval for sole-source 8(a) contract actions that exceed $25 million.


The government limits competition for certain contracts to businesses in historically underutilized business zones. It also gives preferential consideration to those businesses in full and open competition.

Joining the HUBZone program makes your business eligible to compete for the program’s set-aside contracts. HUBZone-certified businesses also get a 10% price evaluation preference in full and open contract competitions.

HUBZone-certified businesses can still compete for contract awards under other socio-economic programs they qualify for.

SBA 8(a) Application Support

Despite the attractiveness of acquiring theses SBA designations, over 80% of all applications are rejected by the SBA. Working with our consultants, after pre-qualifying your firm, we will guarantee your admission into the SBA 8(a) or HUBZone Programs.

RMC SBA 360 Solutions offers a custom designed, comprehensive solution to address the application requirements of the SBA small business program. Our Application tools and expert guidance allows for clients to successfully submit their SBA Certification Application. This has resulted in a 100% RMC success rate. The typical duration for contract award is within 180 days of application submission. 

Annual Report Compliance Support

Post contract award, SBA has a requirement for Annual Reporting of activities throughout the Program period. If not properly and timely addressed, will result in the expulsion of your firm out of the Program.  

RMC SBA  360 Solutions will take on the burden of ensuring that your Annual Report will be submitted on time and that the compliance requirements are met.  

Marketing and Capture Management Support

Possessing an SBA 8(a) or HUBZone designation affords a firm a unique ability to receive sole-source negotiated or limited competition federal government contracts.  This feature of the SBA Designations has allowed many firm to grow dramatically during their nine-year tenure in the Program.

RMC SBA 360 Solutions provides expert, results driven strategies to utilize your firm’s SBA Certification to generate federal government business. One of the key factors in successful marketing to the government is market research. This fosters relationship building with federal agency program and contracting personnel. We have perfected this process and pass these strategies to our clients.

What Our Clients Say

“RMC assisted us with acquiring our GSA Schedule in 2013 by expertly analyzing our sales practices and advising us on how to position our services with the government. Since that time, they have managed our Professional Services Schedule and taking all of the administrative burden off of our shoulders. They have also assisted us with marketing our Schedule, resulting to three sizable contract awards.”

“We contracted with Road Map Consulting to assist us with our GSA Schedule 70 contract initiation. They provided expert and friendly service to our firm. It was obvious that Road Map Consulting was very experienced with the process and they provided prompt and reliable work in expediting our contract. We will definitely use them again when we need further GSA contract work.”

“Road Map took the pain and bureaucratic labyrinth out of doing business with the Federal Government. They expedited our 8(a) application and GSA schedule and saved processing time by a year or more. Not only are they smart at what they do but, they are professional and a pleasure to work with, regarding government business. They are part of my business arsenal when working with the Feds.”
