8a SBA Small Business Plan Outline For 8a certification Companies

Your SBA Business Plan for 8a Status Must be in Place Before Targeting Government Contracts. Call 1-866-601-5518.

If you are contemplating applying for an SBA small business certification Program, you will have to develop a sound SBA 8a business plan outline to show the SBA how you plan on getting 8a contract opportunities. This is a critical part of your 8a Program success. You want to ensure that your primary niche is articulated in the 1010C and that it is realistic and not just a canned document.

An SBA small business plan outline for SBA 8a companies and minority owned business applications is an essential road-map for business success in government contracting. This living and breathing document generally projects 3-5 years ahead and outlines the route a company intends to take to reach, maintain and grow revenues.

Once your small business certification application has been approved by the SBA for the 8a Program, you will be required to submit your SBA Small Business Plan. 

The SBA 8a Business Plan must be submitted within 30 days from the date of its 8a program admission or from its attendance at mandatory SBA 8a Program orientation. SBA 8a companies will not be eligible for program benefits, including 8a sole source contracts and other 8a contract opportunities until their small business plan is approved.
