Beachwood, OH (PRWEB) December 19, 2009
Small business subcontractors are currently being recruited by WTI (http://www.wtiservices.com), a subsidiary of Tremco Incorporated, in support of the state of Georgia’s recently announced Indefinite Quantity Construction (EZIQC®) Services Contract (SWC-90818). WTI is the exclusive contractor.
WTI recently held a state of Georgia MBE/WBE recruitment effort at the Renaissance Concourse Hartfield Airport Hotel in Atlanta. Representatives from more than 100 small businesses attended the two-day event held December 2 and 3. The majority were from state-certified Minority Business Enterprises (MBE) and Women-owned Business Enterprises (WBE); there were representatives from federally certified HUBZone, service-disabled and other disadvantaged businesses as well.
“The purpose of the effort is to actively seek quality subcontracting relationships in support of the Georgia statewide contract and to provide information to local small businesses throughout the state,” said Beverly Kuykendall, national director, Tremco Small Business Strategic Alliance Program.
The Indefinite Quantity Construction (EZIQC®) Services contract is a convenience contract available for use by all state, city, county and public education entities within the state of Georgia. It is the result of a strategic partnership between WTI, the Georgia State Purchasing Division of the Department of Administrative Services and the National Joint Powers Alliance® (NJPA). NJPA is a municipal contracting agency specializing in bundling and leveraging the purchasing power of its membership nationally for the most cost-effective purchasing solutions.
The purpose of the contract is to provide firm fixed priced, indefinite quantity, multi-traded general construction services to accomplish small- to medium-sized projects for repair, alteration, modernization, rehabilitation and minor new construction to infrastructure, buildings, structures or other real property.
WTI continues to seek subcontractors with the following construction-related competencies: roofing, electrical, masonry, waterproofing, concrete, mechanical, plumbing, carpentry, painting, paving and site work. Lighting contractors with experience in lighting reduction and energy efficiency retrofits are also needed.
