Contract Vehicles

We have the honor and fortune to hold several contract vehicles through which to work with clients and partners:

As a certified 8(a) and WOSB contractor with a long history of being a valued advisor to clients, we believe in building partnerships, empowerment and trust with one another and those we serve.

SBA 8(a) Business Development Program

Under the FAR, federal agencies can access our team directly and contract with us as a Certified 8(a) business through the SBA’s 8(a) Program direct source rule. Contracts under this Program cannot exceed $4 million. For rules and instructions on the 8(a) Program click here.

In order to request direct source access to AvantGarde, click here for contact information.

Targeted 8(a) Competitions

Another vehicle for engaging our team is through a targeted competition with 3 or more Certified 8(a) contractors. There is no ceiling on the contract award amount under this approach.

SBA EDWOSB/WOSB Federal Contracting Program

Under the FAR, federal agencies can hold a targeted competition for contracts set aside under the EDWOSB/WOSB Program through which we are Certified and can compete. There is no ceiling for contracts set aside through the EDWOSB or WOSB Program. For rules and instructions on EDWOSB click here.
