At former $work we used a 3rd party support company for Sun support they
had a stock of Sun parts, loads of Sun knowledge and worked as a proxy to
Sun support when needed. On more fiddly issues they just had Sun work with
us directly.

I dont know how small a contract they do or if they even offer support
outside of the UK but it could be worth a try there site is
http://www.scc.com/ .
There are probably other company's that do 3rd party sun support too
