CDW Government's small-business program continues to grow. The company has added five companies to its Small Business Partner Consortium and exercised the options on nine current members.
Through the program, which the reseller began in 2003, small businesses can take advantage of CDW-G's e-commerce, services and distribution operations when they seek government business.
The program also makes it easier for CDW-G to work with federal customers who want to spend money with small businesses. The Air Force and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, among others, have bought products and services from consortium members, according to CDW-G.
Each year, CDW-G requests proposals from small businesses that are looking to join the program. The consortium includes many types of small businesses, including small disadvantaged companies, 8(a) certified, service-disabled veteran-owned, and woman-owned.
The five new members are:
- Anacapa Micro Products of Ventura, Calif.
- Applied Quality Communications of Oxon Hill, Md.
- Dynanet of Elkridge, Md.
- Lucille Maud of Huntsville, Ala.
- Stellar Services of New York.
The nine renewing members are:
- Betis Group of Arlington, Va.
- Collins Consulting of Schaumburg, Ill.
- Global Technology Resources of Denver.
- Joseph N. Golubov Associates of Long Branch, N.J.
- Knowledge Information Solutions of Virginia Beach, Va.
- Management Systems Services of Rockville, Md.
- Mega-Tech of McLean, Va.
- TKC Integration Services of Fairfax, Va.
- Usfalcon of Lowell, Mass.
