Pretek Receives 8(a) and HUBZone Certification

STAFFORD, Va., July 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Pretek Corporation, a Woman-Owned consulting and Information Technology Solutions Company, announced today that it has been certified by the U.S. Small Business Administration for participation in the SBA 8(a) Business Development Program and Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone) program.

Pretek now qualifies for contracts specifically allocated for small businesses operating in HUBZone areas. Pretek expects that its participation in the 8(a) Business Development Program will expand its ability to provide outstanding Next Gen IT software, infrastructure, systems engineering, and networking solutions to federal and state and local government customers.

"We are proud to receive these certifications and excited about the opportunity to partner with local communities to help create jobs in economically challenged areas," said Pretek Managing Partner Dilip Goyal. "The HUBZone certification will also enable more government customers to easily access our well-honed skills and experience for software systems development, deployment and operations. The Pretek management team has worked tirelessly to develop a strong reputation for excellence across the federal market. Inclusion in the 8(a) Business Development program is the stepping stone we need to continue to establish long-term relationships with our governmet customers."

The 8(a) Business Development program assists small, disadvantaged businesses in gaining access to government contracting. The program consists of a 4-year developmental stage, and a 5-year transition stage. Companies are subject to annual reviews and systematic evaluation from the SBA district office throughout the program.

The HUBZone Program helps create jobs in communities with statistically proven economic needs and significant potential for growth and development. A qualified company gains access to federal set-aside contracts and sole source contracts, as well as a price evaluation preference in full and open contract competitions. Federal governments agencies are required to have a defined percentage of all awards go directly or indirectly to 8(a) and HUBZone companies. Qualified 8(a) and HUBZone companies like Pretek Corporation help the government meet this goal.
