Washington, D.C. - “CEOs of America’s small, minority and women companies need to become engaged to urge our Leaders in Washington to avert a fiscal crisis. This means a balanced approach to federal cuts and fairer taxes while being pro growth and investing in long term competitive viability,” said Roger A. Campos, President & CEO. “An increase of just two percent of the government’s $600 billion annual spend will add $12 billion in contracts creating hundreds of thousands of new jobs across America.  It will not cost the taxpayer one extra dime. We need a new strategy that embraces Small Business First and offers entrepreneurs real opportunities for economic growth.”  

This is a national call to action for CEOs to urge Representatives in Congress and President Obama to fix the fiscal crisis and support America’s small and minority businesses by increasing the contracting and subcontracting goals and reforming the acquisition process which is impacting their ability to compete for government contracts.
