SBA Certified 8(a) Small Disadvantaged Business
Alethix is an 8(a) Small Disadvantaged Business. The SBA 8(a) program enables contractors to receive sole-source contracts, up to a ceiling of $4 million for services. Sole source contracts are usually approved in a matter of days. The 8(a) program benefits our federal clients through mechanisms that ensure quality performance. Because the 8(a) program is a federal mandate, Federal Agencies get credit for the amount of work they issue to an 8(a), Disadvantaged Small Business like ours.
Steps to Sole Source an 8(a) contract to Alethix LLC:
- The Government program manager develops a statement of work, prepares a government estimate, and obtains the necessary funding.
- The Government program manager chooses Alethix LLC to perform the work and submits a procurement request to the agency contracting officer.
- The agency’s contracting officer prepares and submits an “Offering Letter” to email@example.com.

Quality Assurance/Quality Control
Alethix’s innovative management approach to quality assurance and control is an integral part of our mission to harness the collective attributes, skills, and experience of our team working in support of the SeaPort-e contract. Alethix’s Quality Management System (QMS) is predicated upon the use of outcome and output measures as well as process metrics. Outcome measures compare a program result or activity to its intended purpose. We define outcome as a statement of the Navy’s expectation of the mission-related results Alethix will provide in a particular area.
Alethix’s output measures provide the immediate result of a value-added process or activity and are expressed in quantitative or qualitative terms. Output measures define the Navy’s quality requirements and expectations and are provided for Alethix’s use as direct inputs into our Quality Control (QC) system.
Quality requirements are captured as part of the management lifecycle and are implemented into the general production schedule. Alethix evaluates deliverables and determines quality control processes and actions necessary to ensure high quality services. These processes are captured in our project and task management planning process. As Alethix schedules individual tasks, an integrated master schedule is created to delineate the inspector for the final product. The schedule of activities identifies the quality control activities, assigns responsibilities for these inspections and tests and specifies the reporting format. After the capture and analysis of the results, Alethix identifies any deficient activities and processes and takes the appropriate actions to correct them. Corrective actions may include additional training, improved process, better communications and/or more management scrutiny. Following resolution, the lessons learned are incorporated into the QCP for future actions. The foundation of Alethix’s Quality Management Program is based on Prevention rather than correction. Every step possible is taken to avert errors, omissions, discrepancies, and deficiencies. Alethix’s goal is to achieve the highest quality standards at the most efficient and economical level consistent with the project’s goals and objectives.
