GeoNorth SBA 8(a) Certified; DBE Certified with Alaska DOT
Anchorage, Alaska - GeoNorth, an Alaskan-based Information Technology solutions providerheadquartered in Anchorage, and wholly owned subsidiary of The Tatitlek Corporation, has recently been granted two new certifications. GeoNorth has met the criteria established bythe United States Small Business Administration (SBA), and has been certified as a participant in the US SBA’s 8(a) Business Development Program. GeoNorth has also been certified by the State of Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities under their Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program.
The US SBA’s 8(a) Program, named after Section 8(a) of the Small Business Act created on July 30th of 1953, provides a variety of business services for small and/or disadvantaged businesses. Congress created the SBA, whose function is to “aid, counsel, assist and protect, insofar as is possible, the interests of small business concerns”. Similarly, the DBE Program exists to ensure that DBE’s can compete fairly for federally funded transportation-related projects, while at the same time ensuring that all contractors are complying with DBE laws and requirements.
“As these new certifications align so closely with our strategic growth plans, we are excited about the opportunities they represent, for our clients, and our employees”, says Bob Johnson, GeoNorth’s Director of Sales and Marketing. “These certifications will help us to continue servicing our customers with the state-of-the-art IT solutions they expect from us, while at the same time providing our employees with increasingly challenging projects”.
