SBA SMALL BUSINESS STATUS: All Tech Electronics received our initial certification letter from the U.S. Small Business Administration in May 2001 confirming our status as a small, disadvantaged business. We participated in that program and were recertified every 3 years until 2009 when the SBA officially did away with the program. While that certification program has officially expired, the federal government allows for disadvantaged businesses to self-certify if they have been previously certified by the SBA.
Pro-Net is an Internet-based database of information on more than 195,000 small, disadvantaged, 8(a), HUBZone and women-owned businesses. It is free to federal and state government agencies as well as prime and other contractors seeking small business contractors, subcontractors and/or partnership opportunities. Pro-Net is open to all small firms seeking federal, state and private contracts.
Businesses profiled on the Pro-Net system can be searched by SIC codes; key words; location; quality certifications; business type; ownership race and gender; EDI capability, etc.
