8(a) Sole Source
Resource-Trac. is a small, minority woman-owned firm that has been certified as both an 8(a) contractor and a small disadvantaged business (SDB) by the Small Business Administration (SBA).
Federal law (Federal Acquisition Regulation Subpart 19.811-1) allows agencies to enter into a sole source contract with a small, disadvantaged business that is certified by the SBA under the 8(a) program. In general, a sole source contract can be awarded up to a contract ceiling of $3 million for services without enduring the time-consuming process of competitive procurement. Using an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contract with a Guaranteed Minimum Buy quantity can increase these ceilings.
