)-- Zenius Corporation has been certified a Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone) small business concern (SBC) by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). This empowerment contracting-program certification was awarded after a rigorous review process and, upon award, provides federal contracting assistance and set-aside opportunities for qualified small businesses located within distressed historically underutilized business zones. The certification program was enacted into law as part of the Small Business Reauthorization Act of 1997.
“I am very pleased that Zenius Corporation is being recognized for achieving HUBZone certification,” said Prasanna Amitabh, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “As a Virginia-based IT company pursuing federal IT contracts, this certification will allow us to help federal procurement officers achieve their set-aside targets, while also supporting economic development in the historically underutilized business zones in the country.”
HUBZone status improves Zenius Corporation’s access to federal contracting awards that are set aside for HUBZone-certified firms, the current target for which is at 3% for all federal agencies. One of the few firms in the IT sector with this certification, Zenius Corporation is better qualified and positioned to enable federal agencies to meet this challenging procurement target. Additionally, SBA's HUBZone program is intended to promote economic development and employment growth in distressed areas by providing access to more federal contracting opportunities. Zenius Corporation is now in a position to encourage economic development and increase employment opportunities in the HUBZone areas.
