Done Deal™ Awards

Providing WPEO-certified WBEs with more business opportunities is one of the primary ways in which WPEO puts its mission into action—and our Done Deals™ initiative was created to recognize, publicize and celebrate these successes.

A business deal is recognized as a Done Deal™ only if it meets the necessary criteria, and is submitted to WPEO as a Done Deal™ via our website. This communication is crucial, as it serves to inform all members about the successful contracting and business opportunities that result from being a WPEO-certified WBE or Corporate Member.

Submit Your Done Deal

The Done Deals™ Challenge Period

Participants must submit their Done Deals™ between April 1 to March 31 of the following year—the challenge period—to qualify for that year’s Done Deal™ Awards. For example, Done Deals™ that are submitted between April 1, 2015 and March 31, 2016 are eligible for 2015 Done Deal™ Awards.

  • Done Deal™ Awards are presented for WPEO-NY and WPEO-DC at each region’s annual Breakthrough Breakfast, which take place in September and November of each year respectively.
