NWBOC Women Business Enterprise Certification

National Women Business Owners Corporation

Donco Electrical Construction is pleased to announce that Donco has been certified as a business owned and controlled by a woman by the National Women Business Owners Corporation (NWBOC), the first national certifier of Women Business Enterprises. Over 700 public and private sector individuals participated in establishing the Standards and Procedures of this rigid certification review.

Fowler Technology Services is a division of Donco Electrical Construction LLC.

“Certification provides a marketing opportunity for women business enterprise to participate in outreach programs,” said Candice Fowler, President. “It gives us the ability to cultivate relationships and partner with larger public and private companies to help them achieve their goals.”

NWBOC seeks to increase the ability of women business owners to compete for corporate and government contracts,” says Janet Harris-Lange, President of NWBOC. “At the same time, NWBOC also hopes to decrease the number of front operations participating in corporate and government outreach programs.”

NWBOC, a national 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, was created in response to needs identified by the Procurement Special Interest Group of the National Association of Women Business Owners. Research revealed that neither the public nor private sector had received or recognized the benefits of contracting with women-owned suppliers. Purchasers failed to receive the best value as women business owners were unable to penetrate markets, stymieing growth. NWBOC seeks to provide businesses with the opportunity to improve procurement while allowing women suppliers the opportunity to compete.
