Benefits of the 8A Certification Program

In addition to the business development assistance from SBA and other government agencies there are several other benefits that can be enjoyed by any qualified small business after receiving the certification.

Here are some of the key benefits of the SBA 8A Certification:

  • Business development assistance from Small Business Administration and other government agencies – Opportunity to receive “soul source”
  • Opportunity to bid for “set-aside” contracts irrespective of size in competition with any other participant of the same program
  • Each participant remain in the 8A Certification program for a time span of 9 years
  • During this tenure they are constantly encouraged to enhance their knowledge both competitive and institutional

However, there are certain eligibility requirements that applicants must meet if they intend to apply for the 8A Certification – the company must be owned and run by socially and or economically disadvantaged individuals, abide by the rules and regulations for application review and evaluation etc.

Even though it seems to be a long and complicated procedure, considering its various privileges, the 8A Certification is extremely beneficial for any kind of small scale business.
