Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Federal Contract Program provides Crescent Guardian Inc a competitive advantage.
Online PR News – 02-March-2011 –Crescent Guardian Inc (CGI), a minority and women-owned small business that provides physical security and security technology integration, has new growth opportunities in federal security contracting. The Small Business Association (SBA) has finalized the rules in the Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Federal Contract Program to mandate the award of five percent of federal contract spending to women-owned small businesses in 83 underrepresented industries.
The recent changes to the Women-Owned Small Business Program allows contracting officers, for the first time, to set aside specific contracts for certified WOSBs and will help federal agencies achieve the existing statutory goal of five percent of federal contracting dollars being awarded to WOSBs. The security services industry is one of the eligible underrepresented industries that CGI is targeting.
Marian Pierre, Founder, Owner and CEO of CGI, adds, “Although we’ve had a 17 year proven track record of delivering security solutions, the Small Business WOSB Program provides additional justification to doing business with CGI to meet the government’s 5% requirement. I think this is the most important thing to happen to women-owned businesses.”
Today, CGI is celebrating at the Women Impacting Public Policy ( WIPP ) luncheon event in Washington, DC to thank all the members who have worked over the past decade to complete the WOSB policy. The WOSB program could potentially benefit 684,000 women-owned businesses with $27 billion in federal government spending.
