SSI is recognized by the National Minority Supplier Development Council as a certified Minority Business Enterprise.

The National Minority Supplier Development Council advances business opportunities for certified minority business enterprises and connects them to corporate members. NMSDC’s Chicago Chapter, Chicago Minority Supplier Development Council, issued SSI’s certification.

NMSDC is one of the country’s leading corporate membership organizations, committed to helping solve the growing need for supplier diversity. NMSDC matches its more than 12,000 certified minority-owned businesses to it network of corporate members who wish to purchase their products, services and solutions. Its corporate membership includes many of the largest public and privately-owned companies, as well healthcare companies, colleges and universities. NMSDC has an unwavering commitment to advance Asian, Black, Hispanic and Native American suppliers in a globalized corporate supply chain.


SSI is certified by the Small Business Administration as a Woman-owned Small Business.

The federal government’s goal is to award at least five percent of all federal contracting dollars to women-owned small businesses each year. To help provide a level playing field for women business owners, the government limits competition for certain contracts to businesses that participate in the women’s contracting program. These contracts are for industries where women-owned small businesses are underrepresented. By establishing its certification as a WOSB, SSI makes it easier for companies that use our services to qualify for these contracting dollars.


SSI is certified by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council.

This certification ensures our clients that the business is majority owned, controlled, operated and managed by a woman. The WBENC believes diversity promotes innovation, opens doors, and creates partnerships that fuel the economy. That’s why they provide “the most relied upon certification standard for women-owned businesses and the tools to help them succeed.”
