WRPS recognizes that partnering with small businesses is essential to sustaining success on the tank farms project.
The company recently demonstrated its steadfast commitment to small businesses, particularly those in the local community, by sponsoring the Bridging Partnerships Small Business Symposium at the TRAC Center in Pasco.
Bridging Partnerships is an annual networking conference/workshop that helps companies learn more about government contracting at Hanford. More than 250 small business owners, procurement professionals and supplier representatives attended this year’s event, which offered breakout sessions with leading industry and government experts, as well as a business expo.
WRPS has experienced great success teaming with small businesses since taking over the tank farms contract in 2008. The company has awarded more than $1 billion in subcontracts, with nearly two-thirds of the money going to small businesses.
