Longeviti Earns Small Business 8(a) Certification

New roles and new approaches await this small but growing firm.

Sterling, VA – Longeviti is pleased to announce that, as of July 2017, the Small Business Administration (SBA) has certified our status as an 8(a) minority-owned firm.

From the SBA website, some of the key elements of the 8(a) program are;

  • The 8(a) Business Development Program is a business assistance program for small disadvantaged businesses.
  • The 8(a) Program offers a broad scope of assistance to firms that are owned and controlled at least 51% by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals.
  • The 8(a) Program is an essential instrument for helping socially and economically disadvantaged entrepreneurs gain access to the economic mainstream of American society.
  • Participants can receive sole-source contracts, up to a ceiling of $4 million for goods and services as well participate in competitive acquisitions.
  • 8(a) firms are also able to form joint ventures and teams to bid on contracts, enhancing their ability to perform on larger prime contracts and overcome the effects of contract bundling.

In response to this momentous event, President/CEO Brandon Long commented:

“This is an exciting time for Longeviti, both the business and its family of supporting staff.  With this certification, we will be able to establish a stronger presence in the market and bid on an expanding array of prospects that might otherwise have been beyond our grasp.  And it is this expansion of scope that will benefit our staff by bringing new positions and growth opportunities to the individual while providing our customers with a competitive source of management talent and operations effectiveness.

Longeviti, LLC, is a well-regarded, minority-owned services and solutions firm located in the District of Columbia metropolitan area (Sterling, VA) with ongoing support operations with the U.S. Army, Department of Homeland Security, and association with several other federal and state government agencies.  It is also a certified vendor within Virginia’s Small, Women-owned, and Minority Owned (SWaM) program.
