About

WHAT IS THE GSA 8(A) STARS III PROGRAM?

8(a) STARS III is a General Services Administration (GSA) multiple-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ), Government-wide Acquisition Contract (GWAC) reserved solely for 8(a) certified small businesses. It is engineered to provide federal agencies cutting-edge information technology (IT) solutions from award-winning 8(a) small businesses like FWDThink, prequalified by GSA to perform the work, and allows for long-term planning of large-scale program requirements. STARS III enables agencies to earn not only 8(a), but multiple socioeconomic credits possessed by FWDThink through an established contract vehicle instead of traditional, open market methods – saving substantial time and taxpayer money.
