eWareness Inc., a leading, veteran owned web-centric marketing and technology agency and proud publisher of the Veteran Owned Business Project, announced that the company has recently been certified with the State of Florida’s Office of Supplier Diversity (OSD) as a service disabled veteran owned small business (SDVOSB).
State certification is Florida's premier stamp of approval for minority, women, and service-disabled veteran business enterprises. It is widely accepted across the State of Florida in the private sector as well as cities, counties, school districts, hospitals, and other governmental entities.
eWareness’ President, Brian K. St.Ours, stated, “eWareness is already certified nationally as a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Business with the Center for Veterans Enterprise (CVE). Being the fact that we are headquartered here, we are very happy to now be certified as well with the State of Florida.”
The goal of the Office of Supplier Diversity is to increase the number of business enterprises in the State of Florida. Certification officers are responsible for identifying and certifying business enterprises by conducting thorough and effective eligibility reviews while ensuring that vendors receive prompt and responsive customer service. Eligibility criteria can be found in Chapter 287, Florida Statutes, Chapter 295.187, Florida Statues and Chapter 60A-9, Florida Administrative Code. The Office of Supplier Diversity maintains a directory of certified business enterprises online.
St.Ours added, “Florida's Governor, Rick Scott, recently released a letter encouraging businesses owned by veterans to learn more about the Veteran Business Enterprise Opportunity Act. Through our Veteran Owned Business Project, we work closely with 1,000s of Florida businesses owned by veterans. We look forward to helping reach these fellow veteran owned businesses to ensure they are familiar with this business certification process and program. Any state program that helps validate businesses owned by our country’s military heroes can only be a step in the right direction!”
