A3L Federal Works obtains the HUBZone certification
We are proud to announce that A3L Federal Works is now officially HUBZone certified by the Small Business Administration. The government limits competition for certain contracts to businesses in historically underutilized business zones (HUBZone). It also gives preferential consideration to those businesses in full and open competition.
Joining the HUBZone program makes our company eligible to compete for the program’s set-aside contracts and receive a 10 percent price evaluation preference in full and open contract competitions. HUBZone-certified businesses can still compete for contract awards under other socio-economic programs they qualify for.
