Contracting

Government Contracting Officers can work with Arete Solutions in a variety of ways as outlined below, while their counterparts in the large corporate world also have unique vendor management and procurement processes and requirements.  We are familiar with and experienced supporting both, and will work directly with you to establish a supply chain you can rely on for cost-savings and timely delivery for your software and hardware orders, and ensure SOW-based services contracts are executed by talented, experienced professionals.

  • As a CVE certified SDVOSB, Arete Solutions may be awarded sole source contracts up to $6.5M for software and hardware orders, and $4M for services, in accordance with 48 CFR 19.1406.
  • Congressional legislation has granted Other Transaction Authority (OTA) to five Federal Departments: The Departments of Defense (DoD), Energy (DOE), Health and Human Services (HHS), Homeland Security (DHS), and Transportation (DOT), as well as the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).  As a Small Business concern, Arete Solutions qualifies as a “non-traditional contractor” and can negotiate prototype and production OTA’s in good faith with our OEM and service provider partners.
  • Arete Solutions pursues open-market solicitations on FBO and other sources in classification codes 61, 70, D, J, and N and has successfully executed Federal prime contractor awards via this method.
  • Arete Solutions has established subcontracting teaming arrangements with successful and established prime contract holders on vehicles including T4NG, SEWP V, and GSA Schedule 70 and Alliant.  These include both large businesses and small, similarly situated SDVOSB’s, and subject matter experts with 8a, HUBZone, and Women-Owned statuses.
