Small Business and Supplier Diversity

Weston maintains an exceptional Small Business Subcontracting and Supplier Diversity Program governed by federal and corporate policies and procedures. We go above and beyond those directives to engage small, diverse businesses in the performance of our work for federal, state, local and commercial clients.

Work with Weston

As a company with small business origins, Weston recognizes the importance of small and diverse businesses. They are integral to our corporate culture and success of our project performance. We are dedicated to maximizing opportunities for Small, HUBZone Small, Small Disadvantaged, Women-Owned, Veteran-Owned, Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business Concerns, and Historically Black Colleges/Universities and Minority Institutions. Our relationships with a diverse group of small business suppliers and subcontractors are critical to how we successfully serve our clients and communities.

Exceeding expectations while fostering sustainable growth

Our small business subcontracting program is audited and rated “exceptional” by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and the Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA). We continue to meet commitments and exceed expectations because working with small businesses isn’t just about meeting subcontracting targets. It’s about our commitment to support certified, licensed, and qualified small businesses by having them join our team from Day 1. Our small and diverse business partners’ success is also our success.

Mentoring and developmental assistance

Weston understands small businesses’ needs and offers hands-on mentoring support. We have advocated and participated in the DoD and SBA Mentor-Protégé Programs for over 25 years. These programs represent a variety of developmental assistance areas while offering flexibility in contracting via Joint Ventures and traditional prime-sub relationships. We also conduct informal mentoring of diverse small businesses by providing the required health and safety training for hazardous waste-related work. We offer guidance in maintaining and preparing certified payroll records, project management best practices, compliance and ethics training, and second-tier subcontract management guidelines.

Small and diverse business teaming and subcontracting needs

We have a broad variety of teaming and subcontracting needs. Most need assessments are reviewed upon receipt of contract delivery/task orders, and include, but are not limited to, the following disciplines:

  • Environmental Remediation, Compliance, Oversight and Field Support Services
  • Civil, Mechanical, Structural and Environmental Engineering Services
  • Permitting, Studies, Investigations, Research Support Services
  • Specialty Trade Construction Contractors
  • Analytical and Testing Laboratory Services
  • Field Equipment Rental and Leasing

Firms must be experienced and qualified to perform work under the respective disciplines and will be required to meet bonding, insurance, health and safety, and other certifications/requirements that match specific project needs.

All small and diverse businesses are strongly encouraged to register and maintain Representations and Certifications on the System for Award Management (SAM) site, register with the SBA for specific guidance and contracting support, and register in Weston’s Prequalified Subcontractor/Supplier Database, SubTrack®.

If you are a service provider, please submit the Subcontractor Qualification Questionnaire
