J.A. Street and Associates, Inc. is leading the way in the Southwest Virginia/Northeast Tennessee region as a proud supporter of Small Businesses, Women-Owned Businesses and Minority-Owned Businesses (SWaM). As a strategic partner with the Virginia Department of Minority Business Enterprise, we are committed to increasing the number of SWaM certified companies and strengthening existing ones. We do this through our annual certification workshop, open houses, bid solicitations and unlimited follow-up attention. We employ a full time SWaM Administrator to pursue the tracking and involvement of certified vendors on every project we take part in. This includes, but is not limited to, answering questions, aid in interpreting bid documents, soliciting bid invitations, and guiding qualified contractors through the certification process.
