Winning government contracts can be a challenging but lucrative opportunity for small businesses. Recently, Arthur Tamayo, CEO of Arillic, an 8a certified federal contracting company, was invited to speak at a gathering of small businesses in the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to share best practices and strategies for winning government contracts. His speech emphasized the importance of collaboration and partnership among small businesses, and the benefits of being an 8a certified company.

Small businesses often face limited resources and capabilities, but by working together, they can leverage each other’s strengths and fill gaps in their own capabilities. This allows them to compete more effectively against larger businesses and win more contracts. Arillic has firsthand experience in this area, having formed partnerships with other 8a certified companies as well as companies with complementary capabilities. By combining their resources and expertise, they were able to deliver high-quality services to the government and secure contracts that they may not have been able to on their own.

Being 8a certified is also a significant advantage for small businesses. This certification, granted by the Small Business Administration (SBA), provides certain advantages when bidding for government contracts. For example, 8a certified companies can receive sole-source contracts, meaning they can be awarded contracts without having to compete against other companies. This can be a significant advantage, particularly for small businesses that are just starting out.

Overall, Arthur Tamayo’s speech at the HHS gathering of small businesses highlighted the importance of collaboration and partnership for small businesses to win government contracts. As a small business owner, it is crucial to leverage all available resources and expertise to secure government contracts. By partnering with other small businesses and obtaining an 8a certification, businesses can increase their chances of winning contracts and grow their business in the federal market.
