As a WBE (Women’s Business Enterprise) PII is able to perform as a distributor for organizations who have supplier diversity initiatives. Here is some information on the program.
A WBE is a designation specifically for firms whose majority owner is female - at least 51% owned, operated and decision maker controlled by a woman.
This certification is achieved by complying with a laundry list of requirements - designated by the Federal Government program or by the individual municipality, corporation or organization. Once approved and certified, a WBE/HUBZone company is authorized to be utilized by organizations, corporations, municipalities and institutions which have procurement initiatives and goals. The program is geared toward the spirit of helping small minority-owned businesses to succeed in the business world which was historically controlled by majority corporations.
A Municipality, Institution, Organization or Corporation may put together a program with guidelines that indicate their procurement goals to include Women-Owned (WBE) and Minority-Owned (MBE) Business Enterprises. Each organization will have their own parameters and requirements for their ordinance or policy. These guidelines might include:
WBE and MBE corporations are the fastest growing segment of employers in America.
