Specifically, WTI received “Exceptional” CPARs assessments on three separate contract initiatives that focused on digital innovation – one for JavaScript, HTML and CSS development for cross-platform application development; another for increasing user interaction, engagement and usability on BBG’s public-facing websites; and a third for development, design, maintenance and upgrade of a suite of mobile applications.

Some of the exceptional benefits of WTI’s work cited in CPARs include:

  • Apps regularly highly-rated by users, all with at least a 4-star rating, and some in upper-four-star range

This unique mobile app provides news and information for people in more than 100 countries, in 43 languages on the world’s two largest smartphone and tablet platforms

Fairfax, VA – WTI, managing partner of 8(a) Joint Venture (JV) Digital MindTrust, is pleased to announce that in June of 2017, the General Services Administration (GSA) selected the JV for its 8(a) Streamlined Technology Acquisition Resources for Services (STARS) II small business set-aside Governmentwide Acquisition Contract (GWAC).

8(a) STARS II provides numerous benefits:

  • Is a pre-competed, easy-to-use contract with streamlined ordering procedures based on FAR 16.505 which saves time and money by reducing procurement lead time.
  • Accommodates long term planning – with a $10 Billion program ceiling and five-year base period with one five-year option (from August 31, 2016 to August 30, 2021), with orders issued prior to August 30, 2021 able to continue performance through August 30, 2024, 8(a) STARS II allows for long-term planning of large-scale program requirements.
  • Provides access to pre-qualified trusted and reliable 8(a) small businesses to enable federal clients to earn 8(a) small business credit; as baseline labor rates have already been evaluated by the government and deemed fair and reasonable, and vendors have been determined by the government to bring a proven performance track record.

  • Allows for directed (sole source) task orders of up to $4 Million, including options, for Federal Civilian and Department of Defense activities per Section 8(a) of the Small Business Act (15 U.S.C. 637 and FAR 19.8) – and its contract holders may take advantage of this unique provision based on self-marketing efforts or past performance.
  • No protests on orders under $10M, except on the grounds that the order increases the scope, period, or maximum value of the GWAC; which minimizes protest risk and supports timely order award for optimal mission support.

To be selected for STARS II, 8(a) industry partners must meet GSA’s requirements for technical proficiency, competitive pricing, and industrial credentials, with past performance playing a key factor in award.   To that end, managing partner WTI has received numerous honors for its proven portfolio of work for the Federal Government to include:

  • a commendation for outstanding performance from the Chief Technology Office at Defense Information Systems Agency,
