Contract Vehicles

Q

uantum Technology Group has a variety of Federal contracts available to meet your specific information technology (IT) needs. Through the Government-Wide Acquisition Contracts (GWAC), Agency-Specific Contracts (Multiple Award Contracts), General Service Administration Federal Supply Schedules (FSS), and Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPA) that Quantum Technology Group has been awarded, agencies have rapid access to a wide range of services.

Quantum Technology Group can provide your company with services to suit your business needs quickly and with minimum paper work under Time & Material, Firm Fixed Price, or Cost Option contracts.


SBA 8(a) Program – Prime

With Quantum Technology Group’s Small Business Administration (SBA) status as a Certified 8(a), and Small Disadvantaged Business, Government Agencies can contract with Quantum Technology Group directly using sole-source acquisition. Quantum Technology Group can receive directed sole source contracts, up to a ceiling of $4 million for services. Sole source contracts are usually approved in a matter of days. Federal Agencies with a Small Business Program will understand how to guide their contracting officers, planners and engineers through the sole source contract program. Because the 8(a) program is a federal mandate, Federal Agencies get credit for the amount of work they issue to an 8(a), Disadvantaged Business, and Small Business. Any federal agency can identify work especially suited for an 8(a) firm and can set-aside the project without advertising in FedBizOpps. This allows the Federal Agency to directly award a professional service contract to Quantum Technology Group without lengthy contracting delays.

If this option is chosen, the steps typically followed are:

1) The Government program manager develops a statement of work, prepares a government estimate, and obtains the necessary funding.

2) The Government program manager chooses Quantum Technology Group to perform the work and submits a procurement request to the agency contracting officer.

3) The agency contracting officer prepares and submits an “Offer Letter” to Quantum Technology Group’s SBA Business Development Specialist, Mr. Dan Lucero (Daniel.lucero@sba.gov).

4) The SBA processes the Offer Letter and returns it to the agency contracting officer, usually within 5 business days, who submits the Statement of Work and Request for Proposal or Quotation to Quantum Technology Group.

5) Quantum Technology Group submits the proposal, which is evaluated and negotiated (if necessary) by the agency.

6) The contract is awarded to Quantum Technology Group. An agency has the option of awarding a sole source IDIQ (Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity) contract to Quantum Technology Group as part of the 8(a) program. This type of contract vehicle would allow the agency more flexibility to issue individual task orders under the scope of the IDIQ to meet evolving agency/program requirements.
