Tenosar Corporation in Orlando, a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business, Awarded SBA 8(a) Certification,

ORLANDO, Fla. – Tenosar Corporation, an Orlando-based technology development and management consultant for government and industry has been awarded 8(a) certification from the US Small Business Administration (SBA) an addition to its already certification as a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB).

The SBA 8(a) certification is a unique program for the federal government marketplace that offers specialized business training, counseling, marketing assistance and high-level executive development provided by the SBA and their resource partners.

Tenosar is now among a relatively small group of companies that are positioned to compete for federal grants and contracts.  They are attractive as partners for larger businesses and as participants in joint ventures, enabling them to learn from other more experienced businesses.

“Tenosar’s SBA 8(a) certification is a significant benefit to our business for the pursuit of strategic and powerful program opportunities in the Federal government space.  In applying for the SBA 8 (a) program certification, Tenosar was rigorously evaluated on ownership, operations, financial health, and past performance. This certification provides us resources and an additional avenue to authenticate our capabilities and prove we can perform on big government contracts.” For the government the 8(a) program provides agencies a simplified and shortened acquisition procedure; significantly reduced cycle time, lowered administrative costs, and best price value.”  said Raymond Negron, Tenosar’s President/CEO.

Participants in SBA’s 8(a) nine-year business assistance program for small, disadvantaged businesses can gain a foothold in government contracting and may receive sole-source contracts worth up to $4 million for their goods and services.

Additionally, Tenosar met the conditions within the Code of Federal Regulations (CFF) to obtain certification as a Service-Disabled, Veteran-Owned Small Business Concern which automatically gives them eligibility to be among a group of similar small businesses who exclusively compete for designated government agency projects.

Tenosar Corporation is a client company of the University of Central Florida Business Incubation Program located at Central Florida Research Park in East Orange County.
