AATD qualifies as a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDOVOSB) which allows procuring agencies to set acquisitions aside for exclusive competition among SDVOSBs and to make sole source awards to SDVOSBs under certain conditions (Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 13 C.F.R. § 125.8-125.10).
AATD qualifies as a Small Business Administration (SBA)-certified 8(a) minority owned small business. This allows sole-source contracts, up to a ceiling of $4 million for goods and services and $6.5 million for manufacturing. SBA 8a status also allows AATD to form joint ventures and teams to bid on 8(a) set-aside contracts.
AATD’s NATO Basic Ordering Agreement (BOA) has an unlimited period of performance, no ceiling, maximum flexibility, and is available now for virtually any service and/or product.

AATD is a subcontractor to a prime on the Network-Centric Solutions-2 (NETCENTS-2). NETCENTS 2 is a primary source of netcentric and IT products, services, and solutions. Use of the NETCENTS-2 contracts (except ITPS) is mandatory for Air Force organizations as the contracts are awarded.
GSA Schedule Contracts streamline the government sales process because they have pre-established pricing, terms, and conditions that government buyers can use to purchase from a company. While GSA Schedule Contracts are primarily used to sell to federal agencies, in certain circumstances they can also be used to sell to state and local government.
