Working with Us

Customers of Tactica Solutions benefit from the Small Business Association’s 8(a) sole source vehicle providing agencies with a streamlined option to meet their demands. Tactica, being a Native Hawaiian Organization (NHO), offers significant advantages that include no requirement for a competitive procurement and the ability to receive up to $22 million sole source 8(a) contracts (13CFR124.506(b)).  This can substantially reduce the award time frame, often just two weeks from first contact, with the added advantage that the sole source NHO 8(a) contracts cannot be protested (13CFR124.517(a)).
The expedition of a contract, using the 8(a) advantage, starts with the Contracting Officer directly contacting Tactica. From there you are only days away from mission kickoff. The NHO direct award process empowers the customer with the ability to team directly with Tactica to create a solution for an identified need, and then to have tasks on contract in as little as two weeks.
