How to Make an 8(a) Sole Source Contract in 3 Easy Steps:
1. The Government Program Manager (PM) prepares a procurement request and submits it to the agency Contracting Officer (CO). This includes a Performance Work Statement (PWS), cost estimate, and funding.

2. The agency CO sends and “Offer Letter” and PWS to dcofferletters@sba.gov. The SBA processes the Offer Letter and returns it to the agency CO within 5 business days.

3. The agency CO issues a Request for Proposal (RFP) to Forward Solutions. We submit the proposal, the contract is awarded, and work begins.

This entire process can be completed in 5 -10 business days or less.
