An Overland Park IT firm’s selection to deliver technology solutions to federal agencies is the latest evolution of the Johnson County business, which has seen rapid growth over the past three years as it expanded its focus.
SnapIT Solutions, a high-tech services and tech training firm headquartered in Johnson County, was tapped for the second cohort of the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) 8(a) STARS III Government Wide Acquisition Contract (GWAC), a contract with a $50 billion ceiling.
Founded in 2015, SnapIT Solutions is an innovative technology services, solutions and trainings company with capabilities in Information Technology, Managed Services, Data Analytics, IT Security, Cloud and DevOps as well as technical expertise in disruptive technologies such as AI, 3D Photogrammetry, AR/VR, ML and Blockchain.
SnapIT is a certified 8(a), women-, minority- and disadvantaged-owned small business as well as an accredited post-secondary training institute for eight U.S. states, including Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Colorado, Maryland, Iowa, Kentucky and Michigan.
It’s the latest in a string of headlines for SnapIT and its founder, Neelima Parasker, who has pushed to increase Kansas City’s and the region’s workforce tech readiness.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to receive this contract and opportunity, which will allow us to help serve U.S. federal agencies with our key services and in the emerging tech space,” said Parasker, who also serves as CEO of SnapIT. “We’ve delivered many technology solutions and services to our clients in the private industry, and we’re now primed to increase our presence in the public industry. We’re incredibly grateful for our employees, clients, partners and our support system that continue to show their belief in our abilities.”

In addition to significantly expanding SnapIT’s presence in the public sector, the contract will enable the Overland Park-based firm to partner with federal agencies, small businesses and corporations to deliver technology solutions through its unique SPRNT business model, which has a pending patent.
GSA’s Best-in-Class 8(a) STARS III GWAC is a small business set-aside contract that equips federal agencies with access to customized IT solutions from a large, diverse pool of 8(a) industry partners. The highly selective contract award was offered to less than 1,000 service providers across the country.
This fourth generation GWAC includes an even greater focus on emerging technologies as well as performance outside of the continental United States (OCONUS). SnapIT Solutions was selected for this contract vehicle based on its technical proficiencies, high customer satisfaction and competitive pricing, according to a press release.
