Stafford, VA June 21, 2021: Trewon Technologies LLC (Trewon), a professional service firm specializing in providing research, evaluation, technical assistance, and information technology (IT) services to government and private sector clients which include, the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Department of State, Small Business Administration, and the U.S. Department of Education is proud to announce that it has been awarded inclusion in the GSA 8(a) Stars III contract initial cohort.
The GSA 8(a) Streamlined Technology Application Resource for Services (STARS) III is a multiple-award IDIQ contract and is the follow-up to STARS II. To be eligible for this IDIQ, contractors must be SBA certified 8(a) prime contractors. The STARS III GWAC has a contract ceiling of $50 billion and the contract period for this multiple award IDIQ (MA-IDIQ) is five years with an option to extend three years.
Additionally, there is no limit to the number of awards on this contract as GSA has continual incentives to utilize 8(a) contractors.
The 8(a) STARS program is known government-wide as a best-in-class, easy-to-use, and streamlined procurement solution to purchase information technology services from 8(a) prime contractors. STARS III makes it easy for agencies to meet socioeconomic goals through innovative solutions within specific master contract sub-areas.
Further, 8(a) STARS III resulted from a competitive 8(a) procurement, which was offered to and accepted into the SBA 8(a) program; therefore order requirements do not require an additional offer and acceptance from SBA per 19.804-6(a) and using a GWAC, such as STARS III, is in the Government’s best interest.
Agency customers planning to use the contract should regularly visit the GSA Events page for upcoming training on procurement authority for requirements and contracting staff.
Upon notification of the award, Trewon’s President, Dr. Bijal Shah, said, “We are extremely excited about Trewon’s 8(a) Stars III award and what this can do for our future. We won across all 3 sub-areas: Emerging Technology Services, Information Technology Services, and OCONUS support. We are also very proud of our team for their dedication and hard work in this procurement.”8a-Stars-III-Fact-Sheet
