GSA 8(a) Streamlined Technology Application Resource for Services (STARS) II
8(a) STARS II, a small business set-aside Governmentwide Acquisition Contract (GWAC), is a Multiple Award (MA), Indefinite-Delivery, Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) contract that provides flexible access to customized IT solutions and cutting-edge technology from award-winning 8(a) small businesses to federal agencies, while streamlining the acquisition process. With a $12B program ceiling and a period of performance through August 30, 2021, 8(a) STARS II allows for long-term planning of large-scale program requirements.
Orders issued on or before August 30, 2021 may continue through August 30, 2024. Orders may be competed or directly awarded; directed orders under the competitive threshold must not exceed $4M per order and SBA approval is not required for direct awards. There are no protests allowed on orders under $10M (except on the grounds that the order increases the scope, period, or maximum value of the GWAC).
Prior to issuing orders, contracting officers are required to receive training on the use of the 8(a) STARS II contract and be granted a written Delegation of Procurement Authority (DPA) from the GSA Small Business GWAC Center. Training is offered at no cost via a self-paced, online course. In addition, Assisted Acquisition Support is available at agency request, as well as complimentary scope compatibility reviews.
