TAPE Achieves Third-Party Certification as Woman-Owned and Controlled Business

February 24, 2021
Alexandria, Va. – Technical and Project Engineering, LLC (TAPE), “Measure Us By Your Results®,” announced today that the National Women Business Owners Corporation (NWBOC) certified TAPE as a woman-owned and controlled business.

While TAPE had already self-certified as a woman-owned small business for many years, NWBOC is the first Small Business Administration-approved, third-party certifier for the set-aside designation. The certification lasts from February 16, 2021 until February 15, 2022, at which point TAPE can reapply. TAPE is certified for North American Industrial Classification
System (NAICS) codes 541690 – Other Scientific and Technical Consulting, 541611 –Administrative Management and General Management Consulting Services, and 541519 – Other Computer Related Services.

The advantage of the certification is that NWBOC vetted TAPE within the federal and state procurement arena to enable us to bid on opportunities reserved for women-owned businesses. The certification also provides a slight advantage on open market bids as agencies seek to hit goals for doing business with women-owned firms.

TAPE CEO and President Louisa Long Jaffe said, “I am very pleased and proud that a third party certified that TAPE is indeed a woman-owned and controlled business. This status provides us with another powerful asset as we pursue woman-owned set asides and full and open contract opportunities to grow with our “TAPEAbilities™” of Management Consulting, Technology Services, and Training Solutions.”
