We are a State of Massachusetts women-owned businesses certified through the state of Massachusetts. The certification must be with a third party that establishes the company does comply with the program’s intent. We are certified here in the state of Massachusetts through what was the SOMWBA Agency.
The current organization that does the certification is now called the Supplier Diversity Office (SDO). It is the organization the state of Massachusetts has set up to determine that state contractors meet the requirements of the state statutes and regulations to be eligible for work on state and local projects that call for certified business diversity on a construction project.
As a Women’s Business Enterprise, we are eligible for work were federal contracts set aside funding for projects promote diversity on construction projects. The following are the requirements that the state has set that we meet. They are as follows:
- A woman owned and managed business and controls at least 51.0% of the business.
- Owned by a woman who is a U.S. citizen.
- Doreen the owner must serve as President.
- As a woman owner, she has ownership and officer position for at least six months and as the woman owner she is active in daily management.
- We take this certification as important because it opens up possible business development opportunities and gives us access to new markets and contracts.
- This is required for contractors that have work that requires they participate in programs which require utilization and tracking of woman-owned businesses, such as corporate supplier diversity programs or federal procurement programs.
Having the state WBE Certification is the way that purchasing agents know that we fully meet the requirements of this program. So, if a project requires it you can have confidence that in fact we are a woman-owned.
