8(a) Streamlined Technology Acquisition Resources for Services (STARS) II - Government Wide Acquisition Contract (GWAC)

8(a) STARS II is a multiple-award, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract engineered to provide cutting-edge technology solutions from award-winning 8(a) small businesses to federal agencies.

This program was created to help small disadvantaged businesses compete in the federal procurement market. For further information, see the SBA's 8(a) Business Development Program webpage.
