Available for: All Federal agencies

Period of Performance: April 1, 2016 – April 1, 2025

Scope of Work: We are eligible for any scope of work under the 8(a) program.

MERP Systems is a certified SBA 8(a) program participant through 2025. As authorized by FAR 19.8, Federal agencies may issue sole source contracts to 8(a) firms up to $4 million.  


How to Make an 8(a) Sole Source Contract in 3 Easy Steps:

The agency CO sends and “Offer Letter” and PWS to dcofferletters@sba.gov. The SBA processes the Offer Letter and returns it to the agency CO within 5 business days. The agency CO issues a Request for Proposal (RFP) to Highlight. We submit the proposal, the contract is awarded, and work begins.

This entire process can be completed in 5 – 10 business days or less

Agencies have broad discretion when it comes to issuing 8(a) sole source contract awards. Although a procuring agency must provide the SBA with some justification as to why it selected a particular 8(a) company for a sole source contract, that justification can be very brief. And, as the GAO held in a recent bid protest decision, an 8(a) sole source contract justification need not explain why the 8(a) awardee was superior to another 8(a) company interested in the same contract.
