SWAM / Microbusiness Certification – A MUST TO GROW YOUR BUSINESS

February 18 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Contracting with the State of Virginia can be a big boost to your company revenues!!!  BUT did you know contracts below $100,000 are reserved for SWAM certified companies / $10,000 and below for Microbusiness.

So having a SWAM / Microbusiness certification is a necessity!!!!

The process takes 60 working days for submittal of your application - so what are you waiting for??? The time is NOW!!!  Randy Brown from the Virginia Department of Small Business and Supplier Diversity will be here to present along with Joanne Tompkins of the Crater Procurement Assistance Center.

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

Need more info? Call or email Joanne Tompkins  804-861-1667  jwtompkins@craterptac.org

Once you have attended this seminar, feel free to schedule a free one on one session with Joanne to assist you with your SWAM certification application!!!!
