MicroTech, the largest U.S. Hispanic-owned IT integrator in the U.S., was named for the fourth consecutive year as the No. 1 8(a) prime contractor serving the federal government on Washington Technology's annual listing of the Top 25 8(a) companies in the country.

Washington Technology touts itself as "the authoritative source of competitive intelligence for executives providing contract services to the government market." Its list ranks the most successful 8(a) small businesses according to an analysis of their federal procurement data from 2011.

As a leading service provider and technology integrator, MicroTech's prime contracting revenue has soared to over $282 million. Growing exponentially since its launch in 2004, the Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned business is certainly making its mark on the IT industry with its sustained growth.

Washington Technology's Top 25 are all part of the U.S. Small Business Administration's (SBA) 8(a) National Program, which helps socially and economically small disadvantaged businesses around the country gain access to federal contracts. MicroTech was awarded 8(a) status in June 2005.

Tony Jimenez, MicroTech's president and CEO, said: "The SBA's 8(a) program has tremendously helped MicroTech and perfectly complements our National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC) membership on the commercial side of our business. And along with our new capabilities in cloud computing, cyber security, and mobility, coupled with our solid partnerships and service-excellence certifications, MicroTech will continue to grow."

Author Nick Wakeman from Washington Technology writes that readers may notice the 2012 Top 4 companies are identical to the ones from last year's list. He consoles readers in his article, saying: "Don't worry, it's not deja vu." He attests, "These four have become case studies in how to use the 8(a) program as a tool for building your business." Jimenez talks about his success with the 8(a) program in the "Inside MicroTech's Winning 8(a) Strategy" article by Washington Technology's Mark Hoover.

MicroTech provides network systems integration, unified communications and collaboration, social-media solutions and other technology services, as well as leadership/management skills courses, business simulations and vital industry certifications as part of MicroTech University to both public and private sectors -- managing more than half-a-million technology users daily. A prime contractor of over 100 federal projects and more than 25 procurement vehicles, MicroTech offers access to 2,500 vendors and a million technology products and services across the government.

Federal Computer Week also recognized MicroTech as a top performer in the SBA's 8(a) program. The magazine ranked MicroTech as the Nation's No. 1 8(a) firm last month.

MicroTech was also the No. 1 company on HispanicBusiness' Top 20 Hispanic-owned Companies in Virginia 2012 list.
