SolutionsAe INC., Wins Highly Sought-After Contract on GSA’s $50B 8(A) Streamlined Technology Acquisition Resource for Services (STARS III) GWA

ATLANTA, GA – February 25, 2022 – SolutionsAe INC., is excited to announce that it has been awarded a contract on the second cohort of the General Services Administration (GSA) 8(a) Streamlined Technology Acquisition Resources for Services (STARS) III Government-wide Acquisition Contract (GWAC) vehicle.

The 8(a) STARS III GWAC is a small business set-aside contract with a $50 billion ceiling over 8 years offering government users flexible access to customized IT solutions and emerging technologies from a large, diverse pool of 8(a) partners. This second cohort follows the initial award of 8(a) STARS III in June 2021 and provides additional opportunities to small and socio-economic designated businesses in coordination with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). The STARS III GWAC shows the government’s commitment to support President Biden’s Executive Order 13985 “Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government” to improve diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility of small and disadvantaged business outcomes at critical stages of the Federal contracting lifecycle.

“We are thrilled to win such a sought-after opportunity. We are the prime on our STARS III contract which uniquely positions our organization to serve the needs of our government with customized IT solutions and emerging technologies. We believe we currently offer the most advanced payment gateway solutions to support financial transactions of all sizes globally and hope to support agencies as they emerge into the utilization of AI, Block-Chains/Distributed ledger; and Virtual Reality solutions to help us advance and compete as a country,” said SolutionsAe CEO Dr. Ana Everett.

“This second cohort award represents another step forward for GSA’s long-term and ongoing commitment to support and provide mission-enabling modern IT solutions to federal agencies,” said Federal Acquisition Service Commissioner Sonny Hashmi. “Small businesses are the backbone of this nation’s economy. I’m proud of our partnership with the U.S. Small Business Administration to create and sustain growth opportunities for socioeconomically disadvantaged companies in the Federal IT space.”

Since the program launched in 1997, more than $20 billion has been awarded through GSA’s 8(a) GWACs, allowing more than 2,000 8(a) industry partners to gain access to the Federal IT marketplace. Awards for the third and final cohort are planned for later in fiscal year 2022.
