BZ Receives Full HUBZone Certification from the Small Business Administration

BZ is SBA HUBZone Certified - www.thebzgroup.comRuther Glen, September 20, 2010 – Bryant Zamberlan Group, LLC (BZ) has received final approval as a HUBZone-certified company from the U.S. Small Business Administration and is now fully participant in the HUBZone contracting program.

The SBA’s HUBZone contracting program assists small businesses in high-unemployment, low-income areas by providing contracting assistance to small businesses located in economically distressed communities (referred to as Historically Underutilized Business or “HUB” Zones) to promote job growth, capital investment and economic development in these areas.*

HUBZone companies face stringent conditions to eliminate fraud and ensure maximum benefit to areas in need.  These requirements, which the Bryant Zamberlan Group meets, include an obligation to headquarter qualified companies in a HUBZone and maintain a labor force comprised of 35% employees currently living in designated HUBZones at all times.

“The Washington D.C. – Richmond Corridor has several HUBZones filled with a rich diversity of talent and experience, including much of the District of Columbia and Caroline County, Virginia, where BZ is headquartered,” said Benjamin Bryant, President and CEO of the Bryant Zamberlan Group, LLC, “We’re proud to be doing our part to grow commerce and promote job creation in these historically underutilized business areas.  The HUBZone program requirements aren’t so much restrictions as they are a proud responsibility for us—what BZ can do to help get the U.S. economy get back on track.”

Benefits for HUBZone-certified companies agreeing to meet such strict requirements include competitive and sole source contracting opportunities, a 10 percent price evaluation preference in full and open contract competitions, as well as subcontracting opportunities. The Federal government has a goal of awarding 3 percent of all dollars for Federal prime contracts to HUBZone-certified concerns.*
