Two constellations based on industry accreditation
8(a) STARS II industry partners are classified in two constellations. Industry partners in both constellations have competitive pricing and technical proficiency. Constellation II also includes industry partners with an additional industry credential, such as Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) or ISO 9001 (quality management system).
Access to multiple types of task orders
8(a) STARS II offers fixed price, time and materials, labor hour, and blended task order types, which provides greater flexibility in procuring different types of IT products and services and meeting your mission requirements.
