Are brokers eligible for the 8(a) BD Program?

No. Brokers are not eligible for the program. A broker adds no material value to an item supplied to a procuring activity, does not take ownership or possession, and does not handle the item procured with its own equipment or facilities. If the applicant firm is a broker, but does not meet this definition, the firm may be eligible for 8(a) program participation.
