One of AMEC’s core business values is to frequently utilize small and diverse businesses. We believe in training and mentoring small businesses for their long-term growth and development. AMEC established its small business program in order to continually seek and expand subcontracting opportunities for small businesses (SB), small disadvantaged businesses (SDB), women-owned small businesses (WOSB), historically underutilized businesses (HUB), veteran-owned small businesses (VOSB) and service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses. Through the establishment of strategic partnerships with all categories of SB, AMEC is able to enhance our capabilities, better serve our customers, and meet or exceed our contractual obligations.
AMEC's procurement procedures ensure that SBs are provided the best opportunity to participate in our subcontracts. We conduct all procurement activities in accordance with the highest standard of business ethics. Project Managers and Procurement Staff regularly review the AMEC SB subcontracting plans and are held accountable for meeting or exceeding our SB goals. AMEC's Small Business Liaison Officer (SBLO) continuously monitors and evaluates our SB performance, ensures that qualified SB are invited to compete for subcontracts and is responsible for reporting the results to management and customers.
We are proud of our commitments to SB:
- Our Small Business Program Policy Statement reflects commitment from the highest levels of the organization
- Our active participation in many SB outreach events. AMEC regularly sponsors, attends and exhibits at local, regional and national SB trade fairs and procurement conferences
- We’ve won several national and regional awards, including for small business utilization, support, and mentoring
- We give annual awards to a “Small Business Subcontractor of the Year” and internal “Small Business Advocate of the Year”
