WillCo Technologies Is Approved As a HUBZone Small Business
April 22, 2009, Kansas City, MO – The United States Small Business Administration (SBA) has approved WillCo Technologies, Inc. application for certification as a qualified HUBZone small business concern (SBC). WillCo Technologies will have more access to government contracts as an SBA HUBZone SBC.
The SBA HUBZone Empowerment Contracting program was enacted to promote growth in “historically underutilized business” zones (HUBZone). Qualified HUBZone SBC’s are given more federal contracting opportunities. The idea behind the SBA HUBZone program is to promote growth, create jobs, and empower distressed communities by singling out small businesses in distressed communities.
To become a qualified HUBZone SBC, a small business must be located in a HUBZone, be owned by at least one citizen of the United States, and at least 35% of its employees must reside within a HUBZone. If a company meets all three of these requirements they may apply for certification as a qualified HUBZone SBC. As a qualified HUBZone SBC, WillCo Technologies will have access to more federal contracting opportunities.
WillCo Technologies is already the sole provider for information assurance (IA) workforce software to the United States Army. By becoming a qualified HUBZone SBC, WillCo will have more access and preference for federal contracting opportunities. Through the combination of prior federal contracting experience and HUBZone certification, WillCo plans to market their industry recognized IA workforce software as well as industry specific information technology solutions to various federal, state, and local governments as well as federal, state, and local government contractors.
