We at Progressive Sweeping Contractors, Inc., believe in being prepared for when opportunities arise. Recently we were awarded three Wayne County Human Relations Certifications; Fair Employment Practice, County Based Enterprise, and Small Business Enterprise.
These certifications establish that Progressive Sweeping Contractors, Inc. has complied with all the requirements of the Wayne County Business Certification Program and has complied with Wayne County’s Fair Employment Practices Resolution. Therefore, we are now eligible to participate in Wayne County’s procurement process.
There are several benefits ProSweep can take advantage of while being certified:
- The certification program will give Progressive Sweeping Contractors a competitive edge when bidding on County procurement/contracts. As a certified company, supplier equalization credits are applied accordingly when bidding on County contracts.
- As a Certified Small Business Enterprise (SBE) company, ProSweep is eligible to participate in the SBE program, operated by the Wayne County Procurement Division. This program endeavors to foster small-business development by designating commodities and/or projects to SBE bidders only. This process provides Certified SBEs an equal opportunity to compete for contracts with much larger vendors.
- We are now certified with Wayne County, and therefore are now added, within our commodity/product code, to the Wayne County Procurement Division’s Direct Solicitation List.
- In addition, being certified entitles us to an array of ancillary services.
Being proactive and becoming certified in any of these certifications with Wayne County has placed Progressive Sweeping Contractors a step ahead of the competition in the procurement process. Being certified helps our company be prepared for when opportunities arise.
