You have undoubtedly heard about women’s demands, minorities or veterans, but you may wonder you’re wondering: “Why disturb?” Customers and prospects come to prepare certifications for several reasons; I decided to share some of them with you so that if you recognize yourself in one of these scenarios, you can get additional information.
One of my current clients crosses the certification process as they have the opportunity to make more work for a general contractor for which they are doing work if they become “certified”. My client is a woman belonging to the woman but they do not have certification to prove it. Once they are certified as a woman’s company and come into the information in the small business repository belonging to the woman with the SBA, the general entrepreneur burns happily more business. And why would not they be a total winning win. The general contractor can continue to do business with a company that they already have confidence and that they can satisfy both their small and minority.
Another reason my clients have chosen to be certified are to collaborate with other companies to tender on contracts. Of course, association agreements are formed so that two or more companies can work together to win an important contract that different companies may not be able to earn their own. These situations sometimes mean that you collaborate with a company that could otherwise be considered a competitor; But as the acronym t.e.a.m. States – together, everyone reaches more.
Most of the time, my clients decide certifications because they want the opportunities that are certified can afford. NOTICE I have said opportunities and not guarantees. Certifications are not a program of rights and do not guarantee the concern of the company that owns it. But what certifications are designed to do, it is even the field of play where it turned out to be unparalleled and provide support in which it was deemed missing.
Women and Minorities Business owners and small businesses in general have not always had the same opportunities to perform large companies. Certification programs have been adopted and objectives set out in filling gaps that have been found. As a result, 23% of all dollars of subcontracting and federal outsourcing must go to small businesses. In addition, 5% of these contracts must go to companies owned by women. In order to support the men and women who have served our country and have been injured accordingly, the Veterans Entrepreneurship Act and the development of small businesses laying down an annual target of at least 3% on the part of the aforementioned federal contract and subcontracting to go to the disabled service of small businesses belonging to veterans (SDVOSBC).
