8a Sole Source Staff Augmentation Contract


Our client is an 8a firm specializing in Staff Augmentation and Administrative contracts. They approached Hunter Wellman with a desire to expand their business into new agencies leveraging their 8a certification and past performance.


Hunter Wellman has developed a longstanding relationship with numerous offices within the DHHS.  We were approached by a contracting officer faced with a challenging situation.  One of his 8a firms was recently disbarred and he needed a replacement 8a firm to step in and take over the 9 positions held by the previous 8a firm.  


Within 2 weeks, Hunter Wellman facilitated the identification of the opportunity, necessary meetings, capability statements, pricing, and contract close activities that resulted in our client taking over the contract (8a sole sourced) - their first with DHHS.
