Securitec Screening Solutions Announces SWaM Designation
Helps Credit Reporting Agencies Land New Background Screening Contracts
Roanoke, VA – July 29, 2014 – Securitec Screening Solutions (securitecscreening.com), a 100% wholesale background research intelligence firm, announced today that it has received its Small, Women-owned, and Minority-owned Business (SWaM) certification from the Commonwealth of Virginia.
We’re extremely happy to have received this designation,” said Jessica James, industry veteran and owner/CEO of Securitec Screening Solutions. “Here at Securitec we not only strive to provide the fastest, most thorough results for our clients, but we also hold to the ideals that any person or group of people can perform at the very highest levels. We applaud the Commonwealth of Virginia for this initiative and only hope that many other small businesses will avail themselves of the opportunities that SWaM and other such programs provide.”
“Securitec clients and CRAs will also benefit from our SWaM certification. This provides necessary documentation they need to support large background screening contracts with government or corporate clients that require a percentage of their vendors be woman or minority owned,” added Mrs. James.
The SWaM Procurement Initiative was established on August 10th, 2006 by then Governor, Timothy Kaine to enhance business opportunities for small, women and minority-owned businesses and to ensure a level playing field for all small businesses in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Governor Kaine set forth a 40% goal of purchases from SWaMs for the Commonwealth and established a Small Business Set-Aside Program, as well as several other initiatives for state agencies and departments to enhance SWaM participation in procurement activities.
