RNDT Receives WBENC Certification
Lenora Leasure
PTAC Program Manager

RNDT Inc., provider of nondestructive testing and weld inspection services, just received certification as a woman-owned small business from the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). Jimma Raco, President, previously served on the JARI Board and recently became a member of the Women’s Presidential Organization Greensburg Chapter. 

The WBENC certification can open government contracting and subcontracting doors for RNDT. The Federal government has statutory goals established by the Federal Executive Agencies , including a 5% prime and 5% subcontracting goal for women-owned small businesses. Various states and local government have similar programs, including Pennsylvania’s Small Business and Small Diverse Business  Contracting Programs. Contracting opportunities can be “set-aside” for women-owned businesses.

If you would like to learn more about woman-owned business certifications or have any government contracting assistance needs, please contact the JARI PTAC at (814) 254-4022 or (814) 254-4023 or via email at jariptac@jari.com .
