With over 150,000 votes cast this year, we at Avid Core are beyond proud to have been selected, for the second year in a row, as the 2022 Best Government Contractor in Prince William. Receiving any award of this caliber would feel incredible, but to once again be appreciated by the county I have called home for 40 years truly means so much to me.
I would like to thank our clients, partners, friends, family, and staff for all you do. Your support is what makes our work possible every day, and it means a lot not only to me, but the entire Avid Core team. We were able to leverage the trust you placed in us last year to expand our stellar reputation with our clients and work on new projects focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion.
We proudly support a diverse array of clients, including local Virginia government agencies like PlanRVA, Harrisonburg Rockingham Metropolitan Planning Organization (HRMPO), and U.S. Customs and Border Protection. We’re helping local Virginia communities plan what their transportation systems will look like in 2045. We’re developing DEI plans that will change the way the local governments connect with staff and residents. And we’ve grown our capabilities to include strategic planning, transportation planning, graphic design, website development, and so much more.
Northern Virginia continues to be an incredible region for business, fostering new opportunities for small businesses and innovating public service. Despite the impacts felt throughout the pandemic, Avid Core was successfully able to reach our small business goals and recruit local talent to help us grow. We were certified by the Commonwealth of Virginia as a Small, Woman- and Minority-owned Business (SWaM) and Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) in 2021 (and received our DBE certification in Maryland in 2022). We are also now certified as an 8(a) business by the Small Business Administration. These certifications allow us to make an impact on a local and federal level.
The Avid Core team strives to live up to our title of Best Government Contractor every day. We hope to further deepen our connections and contributions in the Prince William community as we build on our ongoing commitment to transparency, equity, and inclusion.
