How do I find 8(a) opportunities at HHS? Is there a set-aside for 8(a) contractors?
Participants in the SBA 8(a) Business Development Program can receive sole-source contracts and are able to form joint ventures and teams to bid on contracts. The program status lasts for 9 years.

Government-Wide Multiple Award, (GWAC) IDIQ type contracts, in addition to GSA Schedule contracts, have become the most efficient method of acquiring Government goods and services. We strongly encourage you to obtain one or more GSA Schedule contracts and/or GWACs. Being on schedule and/or a GWAC makes good “business sense” and will provide your company with multiple options. To learn how to get on a GSA schedule, see Getting Started with GSA Schedules.
