Vienna, VA – November 17, 2010 — MicroTech, a leading technology and systems integrator, has once again been named the No. 1 8(a) Small Business in the Nation by Washington Technology Magazine. This is the second consecutive year that MicroTech has been recognized at the No. 1 position on the Top 25 8(a) small disadvantaged business survey. The Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) made its debut at No. 2 on the Washington Technology list in 2008.
One of America's small business success stories, MicroTech (www.MicroTech.net) provides Technology Services, Systems Integration, Product Solutions, and Unified Communications and Collaboration to federal, state, and local government agencies. Through technology innovation, MicroTech makes a difference in the lives of service members, veterans, the injured, the elderly, and other citizens that the government serves. A Prime Contractor on more-than-100 Federal projects and 20-plus contract vehicles, MicroTech offers access to 2500 vendors and over a million technology products across the government.
"We are extremely gratified to be recognized for our continuing success in such an important program for the small business field," says Tony Jimenez, MicroTech President & CEO. "Our key strategic relationships with leading technology partners, access to popular contract vehicles, and extensive government expertise have all contributed to our No. 1 status in the industry. Even though much of our work is not 8(a) set-aside work, the Federal 8(a) certification has been a tremendous help in MicroTech gaining and maintaining a strong foothold in the competitive world of government contracting. As most people know, 8(a) companies struggle to stay in business after graduating from the 8(a) program with a large number of them closing their doors within two years after graduating. MicroTech intends to buck that trend by using its successes as well as the skills and capabilities it has developed as an 8(a) to continue to bid and win Full and Open opportunities."
For more than a quarter century, government systems integrator and solution provider management has relied on Washington Technology's coverage of the key issues facing contractors: government initiatives and their effect on spending priorities, procurement regulatory changes, technology evaluation and analysis, as well as merger & acquisition news, business trends, and arrivals and departures within the government integrator community.
The Top 25 8(a) survey focuses on socially and economically small disadvantaged businesses around the country, certified under the Federal Small Business Act to gain access to Federal contracts. The list ranks the most successful 8(a) small businesses according to their prime contracting revenue from the previous year. MicroTech has been an 8(a) certified Small Disadvantaged Business since June 2005.
