The Small Business Administration (SBA) gets the first impression with the information you initially submit with your 8a application. If the SBA gets a bad impression the first time, it is difficult to overcome during a reconsideration request.  Our SBA 8a certification consultants offer nationwide help to small business seeking to reduce the chance of getting a denial the first time around. 

 

  • We use our legal expertise and experience dealing with SBA 8a issues in court to further protect our clients from some of the most dangerous landmines when they try to get 8a certified.
  • Knowing that the courts give the SBA significant discretion to reasonably interpret what you submit in your SBA 8(a) application can put you in a bad position if you submit damaging information. Don’t wait until its too late. Contact us for immediate help.
  • Help to get through the confusion and to overcome common difficulties.
  • Know that submitting false information to the SBA can lead to criminal penalties.

Understanding the legal requirements and how the SBA really looks into your 8(a) application is the starting point for any small business wanting to know about getting 8a certified. Simply filling out the forms without some level of how the SBA looks your application can be a nightmare waiting to happen.

Experience Matters – We Understand SBA Law

OVER TWO DECADES OF GOVERNMENT CONTRACTING EXPERIENCE.

The SBA 8a certification application process begins with knowing how the SBA reviews your application package and being able to guide applicants away from what could be disastrous results. The 8a certification consultants at Watson & Associates, LLC have been helping small businesses through the 8a certification process and have obtained favorable results for our clients both at the SBA level and at the appellate level.

  • Given our Experience Litigating Against the SBA for Improper Adverse Decisions, We Understand the Mistake it Makes When Reviewing SBA 8a Certification Applications.

Although we have a very good success rate with getting companies get 8a certified, we cannot guarantee that all applicants will be successful in getting 8a certified. Instead, we look for common issues and red flags to reduce suspect from the SBA. ( Beware of companies that guaranty that you will get 8(a) certified.) 

Not sure whether your business relationships and ownership documents can lead to affiliation and cause your 8a application to be denied?

See our success in the landmark case of Argus and Black when we appealed the SBA’s denial of our client into the 8a Program. This case is now cited throughout the country and by courts.

  • The SBA frequently denies applications because the applicant did not communicate the right information in the application.
  • You do not have to be a minority owned business to get 8a status
