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.
Participants must submit their Done Deals™ between April 1ˢᵗ to March 31ˢᵗ of the following year—the challenge period—to qualify for that year’s Done Deal™ Awards.
Done Deal™ Awards in various categories are granted to the highest-achieving WBEs and Corporate Members who submitted Done Deals™ during the challenge period:
Awarded to WPEO-NY and WPEO-DC Corporate Members annually that submit the most Done Deals™ in each category outlined below with WPEO-certified WBEs.
This year, there will be two options for applying for the Corporate Opportunity Award in each region: One award may be presented for a service corporation (i.e. banks, insurance) and one award for a manufacturing corporation (i.e. pharmaceutical).
Awarded to one WPEO-NY and one WPEO-DC Corporate Member annually that submits the highest cumulative value of Done Deals™ signed with WPEO-certified WBEs.
Awarded to WPEO-NY and WPEO-DC WBEs annually that report the most Done Deals™ with other WPEO-certified WBEs in the categories listed below.
This year, there will be two options for applying for the WBE Connection Award in each region: One award may be presented for a transactional business (i.e. car service rides, delivery services) and one award for contract business (one signed contract per service/product delivered).
