In 2008, Ideogenics received certification as an 8(a)Small Disadvantaged Business through the Small Business Administration’s certification program. The 8(a) Business Development Program, named for a portion of the Small Business Act, seeks to level the playing field by helping small businesses compete in and access the Federal procurement market. Ideogenics, a seven-year old IT consulting firm specializing in IT infrastructure, information management, logistics and software programming is utilizing the 8(a) BD Program and its resources as a tool for gaining a stronger foothold within the government contracting industry.
Through timely implementation of IT resources and infrastructure, ensuring effective and efficient business results and delivery from government contractors, Ideogenics offers a streamlined approach to gaining the business outcomes that will maximize your company’s potential and that can be easily achieved. Ideogenics core services include: project management, software development, website content management, IT support (helpdesk), e-commerce and systems engineering consulting. Ideogenics has secret clearance and varied experience serving clients in both the commercial and government sectors.
According to the Small Business Certification website, “This program provides an invaluable opportunity for disadvantaged small businesses. 8(a) Certified companies are eligible for among other things, sole source government business, the real value of this program. This means that you can get a contract directly from a government buyer, rather than going through the long, drawn out process of competitive bids.”
“By using our 8a certification we hope to create business development opportunities and vehicles to make it easier for our customers to reach us and gain access to the resources and services they require that we provide,” says President of Ideogenics, Brian Barrett. Ideogenics will refer to the 8(a) BD Program as a guiding resource for fostering change, and improving their systems and methodology in order to make outstanding services even better.
