The SBA’s 8(a) Certification is ideal for companies wishing to participate in the federal construction market. The average 8(a) construction company surpassed $3 Million in 2021 sales. This compares favorably with small businesses without an 8(a) Certification, whom averaged $620,000 during the same time period. This represents a 5-fold or 5x increase in sales for 8(a) certified companies over their non-8(a) counterparts.
Below is a state breakdown of average sales for 8(a) Construction firms compared to their non-8(a) competitors. If you have any questions about the program, I always recommend contacting an industry expert such as ez8a or Advance 8a. Neither charge for an initial consultation.
