GSA’s 8(a) STARS II
The 8(a) STARS II GWAC is a competitive multiple award, Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) set-aside contract vehicle for small businesses that participate in the Small Business Administration (SBA) 8(a) program. The efficient, flexible way to order Information Technology services and solutions worldwide, while accruing 8(a) socioeconomic credit, provides Federal agencies a simpler method for procurement of services.
Because DynaGrace Enterprises is also a 100% Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB), the agencies get credit in multiple areas.
The 8(a) STARS II GWAC program has a five-year base with one five-year option. It has a $10 billion program ceiling and facilitates sole-source, also known as directed award, task orders up to $4 million each.
Are sole source task orders permitted?
Can hardware be purchased?
Ancillary Services (i.e. clerical support; training; construction, alteration and repair; telecommunications/wireless transport, additional labor categories, etc.) must be integral and necessary for the IT services- based solution
Ancillary Equipment (hardware, software, software licenses, racks, mounts; etc.) may be purchased if integral and necessary for the IT services-based solution.
Telecommunications, wireless, and satellite products and services may be purchased as part of an overall IT services-based solution.
The sole purpose of a requirement may not be for a commodity (e.g. land mobile radios) or transport services or wireless connectivity.
How much does it cost?
The government customer has a Contract Access Fee (CAF) which is .75 percent (less than 1 percent) which is added these rates. • B = CAF Rate set by GSA e.g., 0.75 percent (a constant rate) • C = Embedded charges, e.g., $500,000.00 value in CLIN
FORMULA (Use for Embedded Charged CLINs): $CAF = (C/1+B)*(B)
Example: ($500,000.00/1.0075) * (0.0075) = $3,722.08 CAF
