ARServices Awarded First 8(a) Contract, Expands Customer Base

Alexandria, VA. – January 22, 2013 – Within months of receiving U.S. Small Business Administration’s 8(a) certification, ARServices was awarded its first 8(a) contact.  The three-year contract supports the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) and its roughly 2,750 civilian employees located in Washington, D.C., Stennis Space Center, MS and Monterey, CA.  Under the contract, ARServices will provide the NRL’s Human Resource Office with technical and management services including:

  • Technical program coordination support
  • Expert analysis of government job functions
  • Employment classification, compensation and workforce planning and analysis
  • Employee relations and development support
  • Administrative and data management services

In addition to these functions, ARServices will:

  • Canvass, collect and perform data analysis for projects that are designed to develop, implement, and measure the effectiveness of new human capital management policies
  • Perform occupational analysis and research studies
  • Provide training guidelines, requirements and project management for key initiatives

“We are honored to be selected by the Naval Research Laboratory to provide these critical Human Capital Management services” said Jay McCargo, President and CEO of ARServices. “NRL is an organization whose mission and objectives match our core competencies in Human Capital Management and Research and Development Support Services.”

ARServices is uniquely situated given its recently designated SBA 8(a) status and history of success supporting a variety of government clients. “Receiving our first 8(a) contract is an important step in the company’s development.” McCargo added.  “We have demonstrated that the SBA 8(a) program is a valuable tool for expansion with new and existing clients.  Because ARServices established a significant market presence and demonstrated success prior to entering the program, we have been able to leverage our past performance and capabilities to expand into new clients such as NRL.”
