Are you a minority business owner? Are you a woman business enterprise? Maybe you are a member of the armed forces or a service disabled veteran. As a minority, female or veteran business owner, oftentimes, there are federal, state and local contracts that are set aside just for you. In order to gain access, you have to prove you are a member of one of these socially or economically disadvantaged groups.
These various certifications are what we offer to our clients. In addition to the aforementioned business certifications, we also assist clients with various industry certifications and
State specific certifications as well. The National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC), for instance, has 37 regional offices throughout the country that offer certifications.
As a business owner, you may be too busy with the day to day operations of your business to focus your time and attention on certifications that could, potentially, grow your business.

Named for Section 8(a) of the Small Business Act, this program was created to help small and disadvantaged businesses compete in the marketplace. It also helps these companies gain access to federal and private procurement markets.
As of March 14, 2011, there are revisions to the 8(a) regulations. Contact Us for details.
This new program is designed to expand federal contracting opportunities for Women-owned Small Businesses (WOSB’s) and Economically Disadvantaged Women-owned Small Businesses (EDWOSB’s) by allowing contracting officers to set aside certain federal contracts to industries historically underrepresented by women.
This certification is a review process designed to ensure that a small business is actually owned, controlled, and operated by the applicants. Most certifications are granted for Minority or Women owned businesses, Small Disadvantaged Businesses, and Underutilized businesses.
This certification refers to a small business concern which is at least 51 percent owned by one or more eligible veterans; or, in the case of any publicly owned business, at least 51 percent of the stock of which is owned by one or more veterans; and, whose management and daily business operations are controlled by such veterans.
This program provides a direct link between corporate America and minority-owned businesses. NMSDC is one of the country's leading business membership organizations. It was chartered in 1972 to provide increased procurement and business opportunities for minority businesses of all sizes.
Certifying women owned businesses is the foundation of WBENC's mission, along with connecting WBENC Certified WBEs with WBENC's Corporate Members to facilitate real time business opportunities.
