As a part of a small business initiative undertaken by Anerican Express, nominations are now open to spotlight small business achievements in three different categories.
The VIP awards are part of American Express OPEN’s Victory in Procurement™ (VIP) program. Launched in 2009, VIP is a national program that helps small business owners capitalize on the enormous growth opportunity provided through government contracts.
Nominations are now being accepted for:
- Government Contractor of the Year
- Woman Contractor of the Year
- Teaming Contractor of the Year
The Georgia Tech Procurement Assistance Center (GTPAC) encourages its clients to submit self-nominations and would like to see a Georgia-based firm win this competition this year.
Nominations are due not later than May 1, 2012.
