GSA awards work to 8(a)s

More than 400 companies have won spots on the General Services Administration's new Section 8(a) Streamlined Technology Acquisition Resources for Services contract, known as Stars.

With a ceiling of $15 billion over seven years and eight distinct functional areas, Stars reflects the success of its predecessor contract, the Federal Acquisition Services Technology contract, or FAST, GSA officials said.

Like FAST, Stars is an indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity deal designed to offer 8(a) businesses a vehicle to win work with federal agencies.

Throughout the contract's three-year period and two two-year options, the companies will compete with each other for task orders of up to $3 million each within their functional areas.
