Special Help For Contractors
Have you been asked to Certify your
company’s minority, woman, or disabled ownership?
If you are unsure about whether or not you need to Certify your business ownership, you have options. First, understand that no matter what you may have been told, you do NOT have to become Certified in order to win business from the government.
For example, most major manufacturers do not have minority, woman or disabled ownership. But they still receive huge government contracts all the time.
But when they win a bid, they may have to find a minority, woman or disabled business set-aside partner.
That's because majority owned businesses do not get Certified.
Just like all majority owned businesses, if you do not Certify your minority, woman, or disabled business ownership, your business is assumed to be majority owned.
Therefore, anyone can bid as a non-Certified majority business!
Go this route to test the waters. This is the simplest and least expensive way to find out whether Government contracting will be profitable for you.
However, if you win, because your minority, woman, or disabled ownership status has not been Certified, you may need to seek out a set-aside partner. That's the time to get Certified.
If you want to Certify your Minority Business Enterprise (MBE), Woman owned Business Enterprise (WBE), or Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) status, we can do the paperwork for you, answer your questions and help you provide required documents.
