STATEMENT Certified as a Minority Business Enterprise
ATLANTA, GA--(July 16, 2014) STATEMENT has met the requirements for certification as a bona fide Minority Business Enterprise as defined by the National Minority Supplier Development Council, Inc. (NMSDC) and as adopted by the Georgia Minority Supplier Development Council, Inc. (GMSDC).
The NMSDC Network includes a national office in New York and 24 Regional Affiliates across the country. There are 1,750 corporate members throughout the network, including America’s top public and privately owned companies as well as universities, hospitals and other buying institutions. The Regional Affiliates certify and match more than 12,000 minority-owned businesses with member corporations that want to purchase their products, services and solutions.
NMSDC’s rigorous certification process requires that minority businesses in the Network are operated and controlled by US citizens, at least 51% minority-owned, and must be a profit enterprise and physically located in the U. S. or its trust territories. A combination of screenings, interviews and site visits establishes eligibility. This feature distinguishes NMSDC from other organizations or entities that publish directories which allow “self-certification” as their standard. Stringent certification standards also identify bona fide minority businesses, helping buying organizations’ to report expenditures as well as vendor utilization rates. These are measures of performance and progress in evaluating a minority supplier development process.
“Certification with the GMSDC allows STATEMENT a unique opportunity to establish business relationships with corporate affiliates and other Minority Business Enterprises (MBE). Being familiar with the core values of the council and its proven track record for success, we knew aligning ourselves with the GMSDC and NMSDC was the right choice. As an actively involved MBE, STATEMENT is well position to MAKE A STATEMENT,” says Kendall Flagg, Vice-President and co-owner of STATEMENT.
