The Joint Venture

The Suhail/RWA JV, LLC is an SBA approved 8(a) Mentor-Protégé Joint Venture between Suhail & Suhail, Incorporated and RW Armstrong (now CHA Consulting, Inc.) Suhail & RWA have been in the Mentor-Protégé Program since October 2012. The Suhail/RWA JV, LLC is registered in SAM.

The joint venture between Suhail and RWA has been awarded and is successfully performing on projects for various federal agencies across the United States. We are currently working on an IDIQ contract with the Army Corps of Engineers and an IDIQ contract with the Federal Highway Administration. In addition, we are on a Qualified Vendors List with the Federal Aviation Administration where we were one of only four consultants selected from across the United States and Hawaii. And recently, we were selected for an A/E Services contract with the Air Force Civil Engineering Center.

Our SBA approved mentor-protégé joint venture gives our federal clients the ability to enter into a contract with an entity that has over 1,200 employees providing a wide range of technical services. We believe that this will provide our clients with an exceptional level of contract performance and the benefit of being able to work with a small firm that has the experience and resources of a large firm to support the team.
