The SBA Business Development Mentor-Protégé Program enables larger firms to provide business development assistance to 8(a) program participants. AIS supports STS with management, technical, federal contracting expertise, general, and administrative assistance under the partnership, and together, develop and deliver multi-cloud solutions. Through the GSA MAS contract vehicle, AIS and STS can jointly pursue 8(a) SDB set-aside opportunities. Government agencies can contract to ACT under two Special Item Numbers (SINS): (518210C) Cloud and Cloud-Related IT Professional Services and (54151S) Information Technology Services.
“Our partnership allows us to deliver multi-cloud solutions for enterprises in the public sector, bringing the strengths of AIS – an organization with expertise in Microsoft Azure, Microsoft 365 and Power Platform – and STS – an organization specializing in AWS and Google Cloud Platform,” said Larry Katzman, President and CEO, AIS. “Working closely with STS over the past few years and developing a mentor-protégé relationship has allowed us to create a shared methodology around multi-cloud delivery.”
“Agencies don’t want to be single-threaded when it comes to the cloud,” says Adrian Rich, Principal for Simple Technology Solutions, Inc. “Each CSP has different strengths and weaknesses, and customers want the promise of workload portability as their needs and finances change. Via the MAS, ACT now offers agencies a vetted partner that can provide a true multi-cloud approach along with maximum workload portability.”
