River Linguistics Emerges in 2016 As Competitor for Federal Contracts with Award of 8(a) Certification
The language services provider announces its official certification to participate in the US Small Business Administration’s (SBA) 8(a) Business Development Program.
Benefits of 8(a) Certification
“We are appreciative of the SBA for offering this vital support to disadvantaged businesses, and look forward to making the most of it,” said Jennifer Charlton-Jones, President. Awarded by the US Small Business Administration, the 8(a) Business Development Program helps small, disadvantaged businesses to compete for federal contracts that have been set aside for private sector industries. The program provides assistance over a span of nine years, and will assign a Business Development Specialist to work closely with River Linguistics on implementation of its business plan and strategy in pursuing those contracts. Benefits also include but are not limited to marketing, counseling, and access to specialized financial assistance and sole-source contracts. River will be able to bid on contracts in cooperation with other businesses or as a stand-alone prime contractor.
