Why Does the Government Require Certifications?

Government and Prime contractors look to small businesses for certifications such as ISO & CMMI, demonstrating evidence of maturity. These performance improvements and quality models are used to help organizations establish their processes based on industry best practices to better meet customer requirements and deliver value.

The government sets aside funds annually to award numerous contracts to small businesses. While small businesses are agile, they often lack the necessary controls to provide assurance that the organization can meet the expected quality standards.

At Kreative, you will find a partner who goes beyond certification readiness preparation. We provide strategic and operational performance value to help you manage quality, performance, and fulfill requirements

Accreditations Needed for GWAC Points

When pursing GWAC and other contract vehicles, your firm can earn points by having these certifications.

When you win contracts such as 8(a) STARS III, VETS 2, OASIS, and Polaris, you enter a pool of businesses qualified to receive lucrative task orders from government agencies.

Your chances of winning these contracts depend on your point value. Standards such as CMMI, ISO 9001, ISO 27001, ISO 20000-1, and NIST add significant points to your score. These points often make a difference between winning or losing a contract.
