Contract Vehicles

Steering your mission in the right direction

We provide easy access to contract vehicles that deliver exactly what our clients need when they need it. ​We offer acquisition solutions through multiple contract vehicles, including but not limited to, GSA STARS II and NITAAC CIO-SP3.


8(a) STARS II, a small business set-aside GWAC, provides flexible access to customized IT solutions from a large, diverse pool of 8(a) industry partners.  (


NITAAC is the designated Federal Executive Agent authorized by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to administer three Government-Wide Acquisition Contracts (GWACs) for information technology (IT). With a combined contract ceiling of $60 billion, the CIO-SP3, CIO-SP3 Small Business, and CIO-CS contracting vehicles can be used by any Federal civilian or Department of Defense (DoD) agency to procure IT products, services, and solutions.

Best Value for the Government

"Through their ability to receive sole-source contracts above the 8(a) ceiling, NHO 8(a)s offer a highly valuable time and cost effectiveness to the contracting process, which, coupled with the ingenuity and agility of customer response offered by small firms, makes NHO 8(a)s attractive vendors and business partners." (source:

Effective October 3, 2016, the SBA made a final rule to expand the HUBZone program to assist small businesses in disasters areas and base closure areas and provides equal treatment under the HUBZone program for small businesses owned by NHOs. Eligible NHOs can now support the SBA in promoting economic development and employment growth in distressed areas by providing access to more federal contracting opportunities. (
