United Alliance Services Corporation Has Just Been Certified as a Woman Business Enterprise (WBE)!

United Alliance Services Corporation has just been certified as a Woman Business Enterprise (WBE).  This certification comes after a stringent certification process with the Supplier Diversity Office of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.  This certification was previously referred to as SOMWBA, (which stands for State Office of Minority and Women Business Assistance and is actually the agency within the Massachusetts Department of Economic Development that promotes the development of certified minority (MBE), women (WBE) and non-profit (M/NPO or W/NPO businesses).  Congratulations to Valerie Wakefield-Bianco, President and CEO, of United Alliance Services Corporation.

The Supplier Diversity Program (SDP), renamed from SOMWBA, was established in 1980, to promote equality in state contracting by ensuring full participation of minority and woman owned business enterprises in all areas of state contracting.  The SDP provides support services, resources, and training workshops educating business owners on the procurement and bidding process of state contracts.   All executive offices of the Commonwealth including: agencies, departments, boards, and commissions are directed to include the Supplier Diversity Program requirements in their procurements and to achieve specific annual benchmarks. The Commonwealth believes a diverse business community strengthens the economy and is beneficial to all of its citizens.

United Alliance Services Corporation provides “Professional Solutions for Workplace Safety”.   They provide consulting and training on a multitude of OSHA mandated regulations.  Valerie has led the way for this fledgling woman owned small business to continue to soar over the past two years.  With the WBE certification Valerie’s company is now more prominently positioned to bid on government contracts.  These contracts include federal, state and local agencies that are required to allot a certain percentage of dollars spent on goods and services to go to small and minority businesses.
