SWAM CERTIFICATION – HOW TO GET IT AND HOW TO KEEP IT!
February 12 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am
The Virginia Small, Women-owned, and Minority-owned Business (SWaM) program offers many opportunities for Virginia small businesses. However, at times, many business owners find the regulations confusing and the application/certification process daunting. Importantly, recent changes at the Virginia Department of Small Business and Supplier Diversity (DSBSD) in their SWaM certification/re-certification process has caused businesses to provide more documents and information than ever during the certification/re-certification process. This training will offer an overview (in plain English) of the following rules, regulations, and certification/re-certification procedures:
- Virginia SWaM Regulations
- Initial SWaM Certification Process
- Re-certification Process (including denials)
- Recent Trends and Lessons Learned in certifying and re-certifying
