Sera Star Systems works closely with companies who are dedicated to moving America forward by producing aviation, tactical & life support systems, military research & development (R&D), and program management solutions that enhance the effectiveness of U.S. government services and agencies.
Sera Star has assisted in contract wins for dozens of small businesses who produce solutions for defense, research, and education. Like Sera Star, many of our clients are companies with special designations such as minority-owned, woman-owned, and veteran-owned. Sera Star also has experience as a Prime Contractor on DoD Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) projects and partner collaboration.
We regularly work on proposals responding to specific end-user needs of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Department of Justice (DOJ), State Department, Department of Education, Department of Energy, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and Department of Defense (DOD).
Sera Star’s Corporate Culture Serves to Make Contracting Officers’ Jobs Easier.
First, we ensure that our private sector partners are qualified to do business with your agency through:
- Training on how to do business with your agency
- Communication, honesty and transparency with Federal agencies
- Optimized registrations such as the System for Award Management (SAM), Dynamic Small Businesses Search (DSBS) and other government portals
- Consistent, simplified capability statements designed for ease of use
- Letters of supply and availability of technical documents when necessary
- If a company isn’t registered in the System for Award Management (SAM), SeaPort-e, or some other agency specific portal or contracting vehicle, we’ll get them registered and ready to do business with you.
- If a company doesn’t understand how to use the Defense Internet Bid Board System (DIBBS), we’ll facilitate the process.
- If a company needs a General Services Administration (GSA) Schedule or Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) to do business with your agency, we’ll help them along that path.
The majority of our partners already meet our quality standards and are experienced government contractors but if they aren’t up to speed, Sera Star will act as a facilitator making sure they are ready to do business with your agency. If your agency has special needs or desires, we will work directly with you to make sure that the partner who has the best solution to solve your problem meets and exceeds all of your agency’s requirements. This means that you will never deal with companies who aren’t registered properly, have a poor capability statement or aren’t qualified to bid on a solicitation or provide a custom solution.
Acting as a WOSB Reseller, we facilitate the sale of products and services on behalf of our partners, many of whom already have GSA schedules to which Sera Star has access. We have certified letters of supply and dedicated supply pipelines from all our manufacturing partners and distributors. Moreover, we provide readily available capability statements for all our partners showcasing their core capabilities, socioeconomic qualifications, differentiators, set aside qualifications and past performance all contained in a one page, easy to read document.
SERA STAR AS A WOSB RESELLER AND FACILITATOR
Transparency and Honesty with Contracting Officers
Sera Star advocates for and teaches our partners to always be as transparent and honest with Contracting Officers as possible. We mandate that our manufacturing and distributing partners be forthcoming with Contracting Officers as to their capabilities and limitations and concerning their cash reserves and ability float project costs. Sera Star performs pre-assessments with our partners and teaches them to set realistic expectations concerning their capabilities to deliver products and services to agencies and Contracting Officers. We always aim to ascend slightly over and above on the project deliverables and we train our partners to exercise the same culture.
Approved Source for Large Manufacturers and Fortune 100 and 500 Companies as a WOSB Reseller

We can provide solutions from Fortune 100 and 500 companies, to include custom R&D solutions and even commercial off-the-shelf products. We have access to our network of partners GSA and Federal Supply Schedules as well as certified letters of supply from all our manufacturing partners. We offer Small Business Specialists and Contracting Officers dedicated lines of communication and direct access to the decision makers who are providing the actual solution, product or service.
