VIENNA, Va., Sept. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading Service Provider and Technology Integrator MicroTech is ranked as the No. 1 8(a) Firm in the U.S. Small Business Administration's (SBA) 8(a) National Program. Federal Computer Week announced its findings today, analyzing America's Top 50 8(a) companies' 2011 government procurement data. Headquartered in Tysons Corner, Virginia, MicroTech tops this year's list with over $280 million in prime contracts and an additional $62 million in sub-contracts.
Founded in 1953, the SBA provides assistance to small businesses by providing access to a variety of business financing and development such as education, training, and technical assistance, government contracting opportunities, and also provides a voice to be heard in Congress.
When Tony Jimenez, President & CEO of MicroTech, saw his company on top of the list, he immediately congratulated everyone on his Team via Twitter. "MicroTech Is #1 on list of Top 50 8(a) firms in U.S.! Congratulations to everyone who worked so hard to make this happen," tweeted Jimenez.
MicroTech provides Technology Services, Network Systems Integration, Product Solutions, Cloud Computing, Unified Communications & Collaboration, Cyber Security, Mobility, and Social Media Solutions as well as leadership/management skills courses, business simulations and vital industry certifications as part of MicroTech University to commercial enterprises, along with the public sector — managing more than half-a-million technology users daily. A prime contractor of over 100 Federal projects and more-than-25 procurement vehicles, MicroTech offers access to 2500 vendors and a million technology products and services across the government.
"Our status as the No. 1 8(a) business is really heartening. It reaffirms that if you surround yourself with the right people and stay on the cutting edge by focusing on innovation, businesses like MicroTech will continue to succeed," Jimenez said.
To expand their capabilities, MicroTech has invested in cloud computing technology, their MicroKloud® family of solutions, that provides portable, scalable, and secure micro data centers to the public and private sector. Their latest stride is in Social Media Solutions, establishing Social Media as a Service (SMaaS), a viewpoint and analytic tool to help companies keep an up to the minute monitor on how well they are doing in the social sphere.
The SBA's mission as stated on its official website is to help start, build, and grow American businesses. It recognizes "that small business is critical to our economic recovery and strength, to building America's future, and to helping the United States compete in today's global marketplace."
