Baltimore, Maryland - BITHGROUP Technologies, Inc., a successful cybersecurity and systems integration company, is delighted to announce its acceptance by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) as a HUBZone-certified company.
“The BITHGROUP team is ecstatic and proud of our certification by SBA as a HUBZone-certified company. One of the reasons that we relocated our business from Columbia, Maryland to downtown Baltimore almost two decades ago was that we believed that a technology focused and driven company like ours could help construct a critically needed techno-economic ecosystem within the urban center of Baltimore,” said Robert L. Wallace, CEO, BITHGROUP Technologies. “As our city is looking to move beyond the Freddie Gray uprising and establishing Baltimore as a technology hub in the region, we anticipate that our HUBZone certification will provide an effective contract vehicle for our company to meet the needs of our federal government clients as well as bring greater economic opportunities to the citizens of Baltimore.”
The Historically Underutilized Business Zones (HUBZone) program encourages economic development and employment growth in distressed areas. The HUBZone program was created in response to the HUBZone Empowerment Act passed by the US Congress in 1998. By providing small businesses in urban and rural communities preferential access to federal procurement opportunities, the program promotes growth in areas with proven economic needs. Each year, the Federal Government has an annual goal of awarding 3% of all federal prime contracts to HUBZone-certified small business concerns. You can learn more about the HUBZone program at SBA.gov.
Harry Holt, Executive Vice-President of Operations, states, “Currently we assist the Army National Guard and other clients in fulfilling their critical information technology products and services needs. Through our HUBZone contract vehicle, we can now expand our reach into the federal sector even further.”
