Mabbett recently participated as coaches and mentors in the VA OSDBU’s Women Veteran-Owned Small Business Initiative (WVOSBI) and VA Office of Construction and Facilities Management (OCFM) two-day virtual industry event. The intent was the improve opportunities for WVOSBs and WOSBs to do business with the VA and specifically OCFM. The VA has long been a leader in engaging the SDVOSB community and in helping Veteran-owned companies successfully work with the Federal government.
Mabbett was invited by OCFM to participate in the event as an SDVOSB that has been successful in serving OCFM and the VA nationwide at over 100 VA Medical Centers and over 115 VA National Cemeteries. During the conference, Vice President of Environmental, Health & Safety Kelly Winson, ASP, CHMM, TURP, and Senior Vice President Susan Smits, CHMM, CIT, provided coaching and mentoring to WVOSBs, WOSBs, and other SDVOSBs to aid these businesses in successfully contracting with the VA. Mabbett supports the Veteran community and was thrilled to be able to give back. We’d like to wish our new WVOSB, WOSB, and SDVOSB friends the greatest success in their work with the VA and OCFM.
