Back in 1996, the Weld-Cellucci Administration in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts signed Executive Order 390 – The Affirmative Market Program in Public Contracting. The idea behind this order was to ensure a commitment to incorporate minority and woman-owned businesses into the public sector marketplace. Now, over 15 years later, OBS is proud to announce our official certification as a Woman-Owned Business Enterprise (WBE) in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. This WBE certification uniquely qualifies OBS to bid on state and federal contracts set aside for companies like ours. After 30+ continuous years in business under the auspices of OBS founder, president and thought leader Laura Fillmore, you might say this certification was a long time coming!
