From hiring to career development, we are dedicated to providing options to all of our employees while ensuring exceptional service to all of our clients. I am truly grateful that the Commonwealth continues to prioritize the small, woman, and minority business community in both word and action.”

About SWaM

The SWaM Procurement Initiative was established On August 10, 2006, as Governor Timothy Kaine signed Executive Order No. 33, to enhance business opportunities for small, women- and minority-owned businesses and to ensure a level playing field for all small businesses in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Through this legislation, Governor Kaine set forth a 40% goal of purchases from SWaMs for the Commonwealth and established a Small Business Set-Aside Program, as well as several other initiatives for state agencies and departments to enhance SWaM participation in procurement activities. The list of SWaM certified businesses is published online.
