As a Minority Business Enterprise, PPOIC is committed to integrating disadvantaged social groups into its employment practices. We are constantly striving to increase the amount of business done with other Minority, Woman and Disabled Business Enterprises (MWDBEs). Some of our most long-standing goals include identifying more MWDBE’s in order to develop lasting and effective relationships, increasing the number of products and services purchased from them, and increasing participation in organizations that promote partnerships and participation with other MWDBE’s.
PPOIC is also certified by the Small Business Administration 8(a) Business Development Program. The SBA8(a) certifies small businesses considered to be socially and economically disadvantaged under its nine-year 8(a) Business Development Program. We are proud to work with a program that helps disadvantaged firms develop and grow their businesses through one-to-one counseling, training workshops and management and technical guidance.
