More than $8 billion in IT services work across more than 4,400 task orders has been awarded on 8(a) STARS II. The General Services Administration must start the competition for the follow-on 8(a) STARS III contract this year to avoid a lapse when the STARS II ordering period ends.

Stephanie Mitchell, acquisition specialist, and Brian Friel, BD Squared LLC, will present a preview of what to expect and how to prepare for the most important 8(a) competition of the next five years. They’ll explain how 8(a)s should get ready to partner with prime contractors and organize for teaming opportunities.
