1) Prime Subcontractor Registration. Specific to your geographic service support area, we will online register your business with the TOP 30 federal IT contractors (TOP 30 based upon the total number of federal contracts that have been won by the company in the last 2 years). Note: This is a heavy data entry function that is done manually. Federal IT contracts that exceed $500,000.00 almost always direct that 23%, or more, of the work is subcontracted with small businesses. Very often individual targets are included to direct work to 8(a) Program companies (often 5% of the total contract value). Your registration report will show which companies you have been registered to do business with AND it will contain your company's username and password information. It will also include the contact details for the company’s small business development/coordination office as well the names of the federal agencies/site offices that they are currently or have recently supported.

2) Joint Venture (aka Partnering/Teaming) Prospect Report. List of 8(a) IT companies that are within 2 years of the 9 year graduation period, or have graduated in the past year. IT requirements often involve specialized knowledge about an agency's unique information systems as well as subject matter expertise with their operating practices. These companies are excellent candidates with whom to partner based on their 8(a) program experience. They have also developed valuable relationships with the agency end-users.
3) Government Engagement/Direct Marketing to the Government. Often, but not always, IT service support is not dependent upon being located in close proximity to the client’s office(s). Based upon your specific geographic coverage area, we will provide you our Golden List for your NAICS codes (up to 2 codes). Your tailored product will contain the contact information for all federal contracting officers/specialists who have purchased your type of service offering during the last year. For those companies that are focused on selling to specific federal agencies, ez8a can provide agency specific reports in lieu of the Golden List.
