Contracting With Us


Our process starts with YOUR REQUIREMENT. As an ANC 8(a), we can help government customers establish a sole-source contract vehicle up to $20 million. We work with you directly to develop an effective and efficient solution on YOUR terms rather than having your program disrupted by low-price/technically-acceptable competition. Our process:

  • Brings certainty and predictability to incumbent contract employees
  • Permits tailoring of contractor teams
  • Reduces contract award time frame to as little as 30 to 60 days
  • Reduces workload on customer resources
  • Meets small business and socioeconomic goals
  • Cannot be protested

Government customers can contact us directly or speak with our Small Business Administration Business Opportunity Specialist to start walking through the process.

Industry Partners

We can help current incumbents/industry partners keep existing work by strategic partnering. Please contact us to discuss partnering opportunities to help your customers maintain continuity and simplify the acquisition process.
