Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) April 01, 2014
IBEX IT Business Experts, LLC ("IBEX") 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 (GMSDC).
Tracey Grace, President & CEO of IBEX IT Business Experts, LLC, explained that “We are honored to become a certified Minority Business Enterprise. Partnerships are the bricks in which we built the foundation of our business. Certification with the NMSDC allows IBEX the unique opportunity to establish strategic relationships with corporate affiliates and other Minority Business Enterprises (MBE). After attending a GMSDC event, and seeing the genuine excitement and passion for success in the MBE network, the right choice was to align ourselves with the NMSDC. As an actively involved certified MBE, we are certain IBEX is further positioned to offer a holistic Technology Staffing and Training solution.”
About the NMSDC’s rigorous certification process:
The NMSDC requires that minority businesses in the Network are at least 51% minority-owned, operated and controlled. 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. Applicant MBEs meeting the certification criteria are eligible for specified services provided by NMSDC and it's Regional Councils.
Certified MBEs are listed in the NMSDC national database called the Minority Business Information System (MBISYS®) to which all national corporate members have direct access. On-line database computer access allows an MBE the opportunity to efficiently market its products or services nationwide.
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.
