SBA 8(a) Sole Source
Kreative Technologies, LLC is a recognized 8(a) certified company by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). As a federally recognized entity, Kreative Technologies can offer our Government customers several benefits to streamline the acquisition process.
The benefit of this designation is that it allows the federal government to award contracts to 8(a) certified companies on a sole-source basis as long as the total contract value does not exceed $4,000,000. This eliminates the time consuming process of Response for Proposal (RFP) development, waiting for contractor responses, evaluating all submissions, and mitigates potential protests.Steps to Award an 8(a) Sole Source Contract
