HUBZone

AEi is a certified participant in the SBA HUBZone program

Benefits of our Participation

A competitive HUBZone contract can be awarded if the Contracting Officer has a reasonable expectation that at least two qualified HUBZone small businesses will submit offers and that the contract can be awarded at a fair market price.

A sole source HUBZone contract can be awarded if the Contracting Officer does not have a reasonable expectation that two or more qualified HUBZone small businesses will submit offers, determines that the qualified HUBZone small business is responsible, and determines that the contract can be awarded at a fair price. The government estimate cannot exceed $5 million for manufacturing purchases or $3 million for all other requirements.

A full and open competition contract can be awarded with a price evaluation preference. The offer of the HUBZone small business will be considered lower than the offer of a non-HUBZone/non-small business, providing that the offer of the HUBZone small business is not more than 10 percent higher than that of the non-HUBZone business.

A subcontract could be awarded by a large prime contractor. Federal rules require these contractors to include HUBZone contracting goals.

SBA 8(a)

AEi is a participant in the SBA 8(a) program through November 2019

Benefits of our Participation

AEi can receive sole-source contracts, up to a ceiling of $4 million.

AEi is able to form joint ventures and teams to bid on contracts. This enhances our ability to perform larger prime contracts.

A qualified 8(a) firm is considered to be a lock-tight sole source justification which means Justification & Approval (J&A) is not required for contract award per FAR 6.204, FAR 6.302-5(b)(4), and 15 U.S.C. 637.

Contracting officers may set aside contracts in underrepresented or substantially underrepresented industries based on NAICS code if the contract can be awarded at a fair and reasonable price, the contracting officer has a reasonable expectation that two or more WOSBs or EDWOSBs will submit offers for the contract and the anticipated contract price is not greater than $5 million for manufacturing contracts and $3 million for other contracts.
