8(a) STARS III is a 5 year contract that features a pool of small, disadvantaged businesses (SDB) industry partners offering IT services ranging from simple to complex and services-based solutions such as IT help-desk support, information assurance, cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, and more.  In addition, many
