Small Business Participation goals are just good business, and in some cases mandates. They can also require a shift in how you currently do business, and impact your bottom line. Contracts and Grants, LLC provides Small Business Participation Program Management so that you can concentrate on the more technical areas of your business or project. As certified minority and woman business, we can provide Full Small Business Participation Life Cycle Program Management, AND every dollar you spend with us counts toward your goal!!
Rarely do the requirements of local small business participation programs and other small business goal driven percentages for small and minority businesses include a performance requirement. Consequently, subcontracting 20% of a contract can be a risk to the Prime. Further, Prime contractors only have access to a “list” of suppliers to choose from without knowing the capacity or capability of a supplier. We developed PARS so that Primes have an option to reduce their risk AND small and minority business now have a way to prove their ability to perform.
Unlike Associations, Supplier Diversity Departments, and other entities that provide “access” to small, minority-, women-, and veteran- owned businesses, our entire staff is made up of entrepreneurs. Therefore, our ability to be sensitive to the needs of small business, while understanding the importance of accountability and performance metrics make us a natural choice for providing a performance assessment solution” Linda Chatmon, CEO
