Small Business Enterprise
World Wide Technology, Inc. (WWT) agrees to meet the principles of Public Law 95-507 and the Federal Procurement Regulations, including the Federal Acquisition Regulation, and to ensure that our business practices conform to these regulations.
As a successful graduate of the Small Business Administration (SBA) 8(a) Business Development Program and one of the largest African American-owned business in the country, WWT has a profound appreciation for the assistance it provides to small disadvantaged companies during their formative and early growth years. In our own case, with support from SBA and mentoring support from larger companies, WWT is now recognized as one of the top 100 Federal contractors. Our experience has encouraged us to offer similar support to other disadvantaged firms. We know it’s good business as well as good corporate citizenship.
