Datamaxx Attains National Certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise

WBENCDatamaxx is excited to announce it recently attained national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women’s Development Council of Florida, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).

“Datamaxx is pleased to receive the WBENC certification and assist our customers, both present and future, in meeting their diversity initiatives,” commented Datamaxx CEO Kay Stephenson.

WBENC is an approved Third Party Certifier for the United States Small Business Administration (SBA) Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Federal Contracting Program. WBENC’s national standard of certification implemented by the Women’s Development Council of Florida is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51 percent owned, operated, and controlled by a woman or women.

To be eligible to compete for WOSB set-asides or receive sole source awards, organizations must either be certified by an SBA-approved Third-Party Certifier such as the WBENC or self-certify in accordance with current SBA regulations.  However, The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2016 eliminated the self-certification process for the WOSB program. More information on the SBA process can be found at www.sba.gov.

About the WBENC
The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council is the nation’s largest third party certifier of businesses owned and operated by women in the United States. WBENC is a resource for thousands of US companies and government agencies that rely on WBENC’s certification as an integral part of their supplier diversity programs.
