The SBA 8(a) Program - billions of dollars in Federal contracts for small disadvantaged businesses

Did you know that over half of all the products and services that the Federal Government purchases from small businesses are  through contracts awarded to SBA 8(a) certified businesses? That amounts to over 16 billion dollars per year in contracts that are reserved exclusively for small, disadvantaged businesses that have obtained SBA 8(a) program certification.  So if your company that can qualify to become 8(a) certified, it can open the door to a huge amount of business that would not otherwise be available to you.

ARA Consulting is the most expert and experienced SBA 8(a) consulting practice in the nation. We have the in-depth knowledge needed to help your firm to get through this complex process and to successfully obtain 8(a) certification on the first try.
