DAS Earns Micro Business Certification

DAS Earns Micro Business Certification

Distinctive Art Source recently received Micro Business Certification in the Small, Women-owned and Minority-owned Business (SWaM) Program of the Virginia Department of Small Business and Supplier Diversity. This certification enables DAS to participate in all state purchases that have been set aside for micro-businesses.

The Micro Business Certification is part of our SWaM certification. It is a new designation for the State of Virginia. On July 22, 2014, the Honorable Terence R. McAuliffe, Governor of Virginia, signed into effect Executive Order Number 20 for the purpose of “Advancing Equity for Small, Women, and Minority Owned Businesses.” In doing so, he created a new category of ‘micro-businesses.’

DAS looks forward to continuing our work on Virginia state projects and is pleased to be among the vendors awarded designation in the Micro Business category.
