What is the Virginia SWaM Program?
The SWaM Procurement Initiative was established to enhance business opportunities for small, women- and minority-owned businesses and to ensure a level playing field for all small businesses in the Commonwealth of Virginia. SWaM is the acronym for Small, Women- and Minority-owned businesses. A SWaM vendor is a business that has been certified by the Virginia Department of Minority Business Enterprise and is listed in the SWaM Vendor Directory
Shortly after the inception of the program, Atwood's Printing (Then dba: Kwik Kopy Printing) received our certification as an independently owned Small Business. We registered immediately with eVA for necessary payment processing.
On August 10, 2006, Governor Timothy Kaine signed Executive Order No. 33 (2006) focusing on enhancing business opportunities for small, women- and minority-owned (“SWaM”) businesses. Governor Kaine set forth a 40% goal of purchases from SWaMs for the Commonwealth and established a Small Business Set-Aside Program, as well as several other initiatives for state agencies and departments to enhance SWaM participation in procurement activities.
We fully support and appreciate the initiatives of state government in supporting local businesses that fit these criteria.If you ever have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact Bret Atwood with questions regarding this certification.
