BFMV is proud to announce our official certification as a WOSB (Women Owned Small Business) following our recent certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE). Both certifications were processed through the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), the nation’s premier third-party certifier of businesses owned and operated by women in the US.
The Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) program began in December of 2000. Established by Public Law 106-554, this program was enacted to help the federal government meet its goal of awarding at least 5% of all contracting dollars to women-owned small businesses. To qualify as a WOSB, an enterprise must be at least 51% directly owned and controlled by one or more women and be considered “small” as defined by the relevant North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code.
We appreciate our clients’ commitment to supplier diversity and we are now able to officially represent that diversity. By including women-owned businesses among their suppliers, institutions and agencies in the healthcare industry demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier diversity programs.
