Technical Assistance for Certification

Why get certified:

Federal, state ,local government and many private corporations give a minimum amount of business (through set asides, preferences, goals) to certain types of  businesses. Being in a certain category gives your business an advantage when bidding on many government and private sector contracts-either directly or through prime contractors for subcontracting opportunities.
