Robert C. Ramos, Owner has over 30 years’ experience in the SBA 8(a) program.

From 1978 until 1994, Mr Ramos, while employed at SBA, interviewed prospective 8(a) clients, advised clients as to the best approach to preparing their 8(a) applications and evaluated their applications. Every application he forwarded was approved.

After retiring from SBA, Mr. Ramos established a practice dedicated to helping clients win 8(a) certification.

After certification, he assisted the client in preparing and submiting SBA Form 101C Business Plan. Before the 8(a) client can receive a contract, the client’s plan has to be accepted by SBA.

In late 2010, SBA released the rules for the Women Owned Small Business contracting program. Under this program, certified women owned businesses enjoy advantages in federal contracting much like the older 8(a) program. The application process mirrors the process used to gain 8(a) certification.

In addition to the above services, Mr. Ramos is available to list the client’s company with the CCR and OARCA databases, which is a prerequisite to receiving any kind of federal contract.
