Environmental Engineering company based out of northern Virginia

Client Requirement

A small environment engineering Virginia based company was looking to obtain its SBA 8(a) certification to do more business with the federal government. The firm had a long and ongoing relationship with a prime contracting for many years and was looking to take the next step in its growth development.

Description of RMC Engagement/Service Provided

Management Consulting

RMC prepared and submitted its SBA 8(a) application, satisfying all the requirements of the Small Business Administration. After its review, the SBA denied the firm its 8(a) certification, based on affiliation issues associated with its relationship prime contractor, who was also the owner’s former employer.

Successful Outcome

RMC wrote and extensive appeal letter on behalf of our client, outlining that based on the rules concerning affiliation as outlined in 13 CFR 121.103, this firm was not affiliated with the prime contractor.
