Is the 8A program the only socio economic category that can receive a Direct Sole Source Award?

Well, sole source awards are authorized under HUBZone, SDVOSB, and WOSB programs. However, they're not referred to as "direct". Unlike other socioeconomic programs, the contracting agency awards contracts to the SBA under the 8(a) Program. Some agencies have entered into partnership agreements with the SBA that permits them to make "direct" awards to 8(a) contractors, without having to include the SBA as a signatory. Since the SBA is not a party to sole source contracts under other socioeconomic programs, there's no need to make a distinction as "direct" or not.
