SRE is the first business in WV registered & designated as an Economically Disadvantaged Woman Owned small business

February 13, 2011

FAIRMONT - The U.S. Small Business Administration's new federal contracting program "is a way of evening the playing field" for women in the business world.

Melissa Loder, business development specialist for the SBA's West Virginia District Office in Clarksburg, explained that President Barack Obama's administration made a commitment to develop a contracting rule that would help women-owned small businesses, and a lot of legislation and regulations have followed.

Congress amended the Small Business Act in 2000 to include the need for a women-owned small business program, and the implementation has been in the works since then.

"This has been a while in the making," said Rick Haney, public information officer for the West Virginia District Office of the SBA.

Through the Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Federal Contract Program, which kicked off Feb. 4, the federal government will begin setting aside 5 percent of its contracting opportunities for women-owned small businesses and economically disadvantaged women-owned small businesses, Loder said.

"Women-owned businesses are one of the fastest growing sectors of the economy," SBA Administrator Karen Mills said in a press release.

"As we continue to look to small businesses to grow, create jobs and lead America into the future, women-owned businesses will play a key role. That's why providing them with all the tools necessary to compete for and win federal contracts is so important. Federal contracts can provide women-owned small businesses with the oxygen they need to take their business to the next level."

Loder said the West Virginia SBA office has reached out to women-owned small businesses in West Virginia to encourage them to get registered in the Central Contractor Registration (CCR) system and the Online Representation and Certification Application (ORCA) system. These systems are being updated and should be in place and working smoothly online by April so that agencies can then find certified women-owned small businesses for work...

She provided handheld radios for each member of the relief team to help ensure their safety and ability to communicate. When asked about her generosity, she said, "I believe it is important to help those who are in need. From a personal and corporate standpoint we must lead with our hearts regardless of the bottom line."

SRE Practice Manager, Izla Felita Hearn, along with seven other concerned citizens traveled to Haiti to provide aid.

Ms. Hearn shared a little about her trip, "It's good to have a leader who is concerned about other people. The situation in Haiti is bad, worse than they show on TV.
