The determination of whether a business is a "small business" or not is dependent on the type of industry, the annual receipt, and the number of employees. To see if your company qualifies as a small business please review the latest update on the Small Business Administration's website.
In addition to the small business designation, your firm may also qualify as a disadvantaged small business. A small business must be at least 51% owned and controlled by a socially and economically disadvantaged individual or individuals. African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian Pacific Americans, Subcontinent Asian Americans, and Native Americans are presumed to quality. Other individuals can qualify if they show by a "preponderance of the evidence" that they are disadvantaged. All individuals must have a net worth of less than $750,000, excluding the equity of the business and primary residence. Successful applicants must also meet applicable size standards for small businesses in their industry.
Park Construction Company is an equal opportunity employer and as such our stringent EEO Policy is written into all of our subcontractor agreements.
