West Chester, PA (January 16, 2024)— Weston Solutions, Inc. (Weston) together with Bering Straits Global Innovations, LLC (BSGI), a Small Business Administration (SBA)-Certified 8(a) Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB), are pleased to announce the recent U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) approval of their Mentor Protégé Agreement (MPA) under NAICS code 236210.
The MPA establishes the framework for Weston to provide developmental assistance and mentoring to BSGI in the areas of management and technical assistance, contracting and subcontracting, and targeted business development. This collaboration also provides opportunities for BSGI to receive hands-on experience to strengthen their infrastructure services in the Federal, State, local and commercial markets.
This newly formed partnership ensures low risk and high confidence of successful project performance, as it builds upon the long-term working relationships between key BSGI and Weston personnel, with multiple projects executed under prime and subcontractor relationships (including work in secure/classified facilities).
Stephanie Sherwood, Weston’s Supplier Diversity Program Manager/Small Business Liaison Officer, states, “Weston has realized great benefits from its participation in the SBA’s Mentor Protégé Program and could not be more proud to have recently been recognized for our achievements by receiving the SAME 2023 Large Business award for the best overall Small Business and Supplier Diversity Programs in the Department of Defense AEC market. Our firm’s lengthy and notable experience as a Federal Prime Contractor affords us the opportunity to provide developmental assistance that is tailored to the unique needs of an emerging small business like BSGI. I’m excited to continue Weston’s successful track record of mentoring under the SBA’s Program, while we strive to achieve exceptional contract execution for our clients.”
