SBA 8(A)

COY PLUS is an SBA-certified Economically Disadvantaged Woman-Owned Small Business (EDWOSB & WOSB) and is a part of the 8(a) program.  This means that federal purchasers can work directly with COY PLUS through sole-source contracts without the need to go through a lengthy traditional procurement process. COY PLUS keeps pace with the progressive needs of the public sector. We adapt to the needs of our customers and clients. We aim to serve our customers ethically and responsibly, while providing them with maximum value.


Utilizing the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) directed 8(a) program to contract with COY PLUS is easy. Follow the steps below to work with COY PLUS as a sole-sourced contractor. The entire process can usually be completed in 10 business days, on average.

Step 1: Contact COY PLUS to discuss your project needs and establish technical requirements, timelines, and project budget.

Step 2: Contact your Agency’s Contracting Officer or Small Business Specialist and work with them to create an Agency Offering package (1AW FAR19.804-2) that includes the following: Estimated period of performance, applicable NAICS code, anticipated dollar value, etc. (Centricity can work with you to prepare this package)

Step 3: The Contracting Officer will send the package from step two along with an Offering Letter to Centricity’s SBA representative. The SBA will review the package and authorize negotiations for the contract.

Step 4: The Contracting Officer negotiates cost and terms of the contract with Centricity after reviewing cost and technical proposals.

Step 5: Upon completion of negotiations, the Contracting Officer sends a contract award to Centricity and both parties sign. A copy of the signed contract is then sent to the SBA.

Step 6: Contract performance begins. Congratulations!

We are proud to do business with the UNITED STATES FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.


Contract Number: 
Capabilities/NAICS Codes :  

OVERVIEW: Under the GSA Schedules Program, GSA establishes long-term government-wide contracts with commercial firms to provide access to over 10 million commercial supplies and services that can be ordered directly from GSA Schedule contractors or through the GSA Advantage! online shopping and ordering system.

WHO CAN USE THE GSA SCHEDULE? All federal government agencies, quasi-federal agencies, and government contractors purchasing in support of government funded work and state and local governments can purchase from GSA Schedules. For a complete list of agencies and contractors eligible to use GSA sources of supply, visit the GSA web site under "Eligibility to Use GSA Sources".


The Small Business Administration’s (SBA) 8(a) program was designed to guarantee quality performance through a process of screening and preselecting contractors for qualification to the program.  The 8(a) program allows for federal agencies to quickly and efficiently screen and select a contractor for projects and contracts that fall within that contractor’s NAICS codes and award business to them through a simplified acquisition process. To order services quickly and efficiently from COY PLUS, request a quote.

FASTER ACQUISITION TIME: Sole-sourcing a contractor through the 8(a) program takes less than 10 business days, on average. Compared to the 60-90+ day time for a traditional acquisition process, utilizing a SBA-vetted 8(a) vendor allows performance to begin on a project more quickly, saving time and resources.

QUALIFIED CONTRACTOR OF CHOICE: When sole-sourcing to an 8(a) vendor, an agency has the ability to develop a relationship with a contractor that they can trust.  Since 8(a) vendors can be sole-sourced to for multiple contracts, building a relationship allows the contractor to better service the agency.  A direct contractor relationship eliminates the need for an agency to familiarize multiple contractors with their operational goals and allows new projects to start with existing momentum each time they work with their preferred 8(a) contractor of choice.

FASTER NEGOTIATION: Agencies can quickly negotiate and award contractors when sole-sourcing through the 8(a) program. Simplified Acquisition Efforts (contracts under $150,000) do not require technical proposals, and can directly be negotiated based on a cost proposal. If the work exceeds the Simplified Acquisition Threshold, technical and cost proposals will serve as a baseline for contract negotiations.

MORE VALUE: All levels of federal agencies can sole-source through the 8(a) program. Field offices, smaller departments, and individual program coordinators all have the ability to work with their contracting officer to bring in a trusted 8(a) partner to help get the job done without the traditional barriers of expense and time associated with the full acquisition process.
