What is Diversity/Disadvantaged Procurement?
"Diversity/Disadvantaged Procurement," is BIG business. Fortune 1000's and governmental organizations know this and know how to use these programs to their full advantage. Women-owned, minority-owned, veteran-owned, economically-disadvantaged, disabled Veteran-owned, companies located in impoverished economic areas, (to name a few,) may be eligible for special consideration when competing on bids. These certifications and programs are designed to help these types of businesses get a foot in the door. How successful your company will become if awarded a contract depends on the quality of work you offer.
Vantage Point's key mission Is to increase the number of contracts being awarded to disadvantaged companies by offering our unique and highly-specialized expertise in addition to educating the business community clearly about the opportunities available.
If your company is eligible, but not taking advantage of these certification programs, you may be eliminated from bidding or working on certain projects. These lucrative contracts will continue to be awarded to other, certified firms who, in many cases are contracted directly by the Fortune 1000 and governmental agencies with offers to bid.
Do you think your company is too small to take advantage of these opportunities?
THINK AGAIN! Whether you are a $100M construction firm or a home-based business selling gift baskets, someone is looking to buy your product. Of course, it takes desire and commitment on your part to take full advantage of these new opportunities, but it's time well spent.
The manner in which Fortune 1000s, the federal government, state and local governments and large corporations buy goods and services is changing very quickly.
Procurement is in a world of its own. It has a unique language and ways of conducting business that elude many business owners. Vantage Point helps you understand the process, speak the language, and guide you in the right direction from the very beginning. Once you understand the process, it will become less intimidating and you will get the results you want.
Make sure your company is positioned to take advantage of these exciting opportunities and help keep your local economy strong for years to come.
