SBA & Agencies Partnership Agreements

The Partnership Agreement (PA) represents the delegation of SBA’s 8(a) contract execution authority to other federal agencies. The purpose of the PA is to streamline the contract execution process between SBA, the participating Federal Agency and the 8 (a) participant. Federal agencies without an executed PA must continue to process 8(a) contracts using the procedures of CFR § 124.508 and FAR § 19.8. Currently, SBA has 45 executed Partnership Agreements.
