8(a) Certification Service

8(a) Certification Application Service

All-Inclusive – No Additional Fees for 2-Year Waiver, Affiliated Entity or Reconsideration

This is an all-inclusive package and it’s perfectly designed for small businesses that want to simplify the process of developing their 8(a) application. This program is utilized by companies in a variety of industries and makes the process more efficient.  

Through our process, our business analysts work directly with the business owner(s) to conduct a thorough assessment of the business. It’s at this early stages that we can help you determine if the 8(a) program is a match for your company. Not every application is a match for this program, however, if your company is not recommended, our company will guide you through the steps to strengthen your application. 

Application development typically takes 30-45 days. For LIBERTY8a clients, the SBA’s application evaluation period may take as little as 90-120 days. From start to finish, expect to take about six months to receive your certification. 

While we provide guidance throughout the entire application process, there are several key areas that we address that can make a difference in the application process. This includes:

  • Audit of all business and personal tax returns
  • Audit of business financial statements
  • Developing a thorough application packet to submit through SBA’s Certify system
  • In the case of non-disadvantaged individuals we develop the social disadvantaged narrative. This involves interviews and multiple rounds of edits

Additionally, one of the LIBERTY8a Partners coaches you on how to engage with the federal government on contract work.

EG Management Services Inc. has been working with Lindsay since 2011. She helped us to get a SBA approved 8(a) certification as well as a SBA approved Mentor-protégé agreement and it felt effortless. EGMS would like to thank Lindsay for her hard work that provided the best results possible.”

    “Working with Lindsay these past few years has been a wonderful experience. She effortlessly walked me through the process to obtain my business’ 8(a) certification and helped me prepare our annual 8(a) report. In both instances she was responsive, well-organized and extremely detail-oriented. I can’t thank her enough for helping my business obtain and maintain our 8(a) certification through the Small Business Administration. I look forward to working with her again in the future to help us fulfill all of our SBA requirements. I trust no one else more than her to get the job done right the first time.”

    Founder and CEO, Amivero:

    “I have had the pleasure of working with Lindsay on my firm’s 8a application. Lindsay helped navigate me through the process and made sure we submitted a complete and accurate application to SBA. Although my application required a social disadvantaged narrative, as I am a Caucasian woman business owner, Lindsay helped me to prepare a solid narrative and was able to get my firm 8(a) certified. Thank you to LIBERTY8a for your assistance and guidance through this entire process.”
