8(a) STARS III highlighted by Executive Office of The President

stars III

The 8(a) STARS III GWAC was mentioned in a recently published memo from the Executive Office of The President. The June 29th memo, Strategies for Meeting and Exceeding the Small Disadvantaged Business Goal for Fiscal Year 2022, encourages acquisition professionals to take advantage of the 8(a) STARS III GWAC to obtain IT services while supporting America’s small disadvantaged businesses.

“Last year, the President made a commitment to increase the share of contract dollars awarded to small disadvantaged businesses (SDBs) to 15 percent by 2025. Achieving this heightened commitment will result in an additional $100 billion in awards to small businesses in underserved communities in 5 years, which makes this commitment critical to building generational wealth for firms owned by underrepresented individuals and creating a more dynamic and resilient supplier base.”

In reference to the 8(a) STARS III GWAC, the article states “8(a) STARS III provides ready access to over 1,100 highly qualified 8(a) contractors for a wide range of emerging, cutting-edge, information technology (IT) services, including state-of-the-art emerging technologies to protect from evolving threats, artificial intelligence (including machine learning, deep learning/neural networks, natural language generation), automatic computing, blockchain/distributed ledger, quantum computing, robotic process automation, technological convergence, virtual reality (including augmented reality, extended reality, mixed reality), information assurance, and cybersecurity to store, analyze, and securely share data. Over the last 10 years, the STARS program has supported over $15 billion in agency orders to SDBs.”

Assurit was awarded an 8(a) Streamlined Technology Acquisition Resources for Services (STARS) III Government-wide Acquisition Contract (GWAC) #47QTCB22D0105 by the General Services Administration (GSA) in February of 2022.
