IMPACT. The competition was tight for the Public’s Choice Award. People voted from all over the nation on what HUBZone company had the most effective pitch. When TargetGov calculated all the votes the winner of the Public’s Choice Award was BNL Consulting LLC. This industry leader in the data analytics, data visualization, and enterprise integration space walked away with a check from AstraZeneca of $500.

Not to be outdone, V-Tech Solutions, Inc. was the ultimate winner with the Judge’s Choice Award of $1,000. V-Tech has been breaking all kinds of records providing health, technology, professional service during the COVID pandemic. For the District of Columbia, they provided COVID emergency nursing services related to drug treatment, recovery, and prevention. In Montgomery Alabama, they hired over 100 call service representatives for the Department of Education and will be hiring an additional 100 in January 2022.

If that has not been keeping this HUBZone Company busy enough, their President
Victor Holt testified in October to the House Committee on Small Business
Subcommittee on Contracting and Infrastructure on “Growing the Small Business Supplier Base in Government Contracting”. One of his most memorable quotes to the U.S. House of Congress was “…category management also does not achieve the law’s stated goal of utilizing small businesses to the “maximum practicable extent possible,” and will make reaching government-wide small business goals even more difficult. The utilization of HUBZone companies already poses a problem for the government – it has never reached the 3% goal. Further limiting contract competition to utilize only multiple award contracts will have a devastating effect on small business participation in federal contracting.”
