Quality Assurance:

Castalia is committed to provide its technical products and services with the highest level of quality. Castalia’s “standard approach” to planning, designing, developing and successfully delivering systems, products and services to its customers is based on quality assurance (QA) plans, processes, manuals, organizations, and training materials. Our QA resources are available at the corporate level, but implementation and execution occur locally, driven by the requirements of individual customers. We are in the process of receiving our ISO 9001:2015 quality management systems certification.

Our quality processes are summarized as follows:

Quality reviews use checklists to verify contractual compliance
Peer reviews to validate deliverables and monitor quality
Audits using procedures and checklists to verify compliance
Customer feedback reviews to ensure the timely identification and resolution of quality issues
Performance report reviews by management enabling preventive rather than corrective action.
Our quality processes combine the capabilities of our corporate management and our administrative organization to ensure that all contract deliverables are compliant quality products.

Awarded Task Orders

Contracts  GSA STARS II

GSA 8(a) STARS II is a General Services Administration (GSA) multiple-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ), Government-wide Acquisition Contract (GWAC) reserved solely for 8(a) certified small businesses. It is engineered to provide federal agencies cutting-edge information technology (IT) solutions from award-winning 8(a) small businesses like Castalia, prequalified by GSA to perform the work, and allows for long-term planning of large-scale program requirements. GSA 8(a) STARS II enables agencies to earn not only 8(a), but multiple socioeconomic credits possessed by Castalia through an established contract vehicle instead of traditional, open market methods – saving substantial time and taxpayer money.

Prior to issuing orders under GSA 8(a) STARS II, federal contracting officers are required to receive training on the use of the GSA 8(a) STARS II contract from the GSA Small Business GWAC Center and be granted a written Delegation of Procurement Authority (DPA). Training can be obtained in as little as one to two hours at no cost via:
Self-paced, online training;
Conference call; or
Onsite training presented by GSA GWAC Center experts.
NOTE: DPA may be granted the same day, although typical cycle time is two business days and many training sessions offer Continuous Learning Points.


Direct Acquisitions – The agency requiring services uses its own internal acquisition capabilities / staff to procure services and is responsible for the entire acquisition.
Assisted Acquisitions – One agency has the requirement but uses the services of another third party agency to procure the needed services. In an assisted acquisition socioeconomic credit for a prime contractor always goes to the funding agency.
