VIP National Center Graduate MedalOn June 23, 2016, JMA Solutions completed the Veteran Institute Procurement (VIP) GROW Program, a comprehensive training and certification program that helps veteran-owned businesses strengthen their ability to win government contracts and do business with both military and civilian agencies.

JMA was one of 47 businesses from 14 states and D.C. to graduate from the VIP GROW Program. During the program’s graduation, Barbara Ashe, VIP Grow National Director presented a congressional citation to JMA’s Senior VP of Program Services, Avis Dillard-Bullock.

“The training was extremely helpful to us in obtaining our certification. I firmly believe that this will open many doors and offers endless business opportunity for JMA Solutions.” –Avis Dillard-Bullock, Senior Vice President of Program Services.

VIP GROW is a ground breaking program, in which professional subject-matter specialists bestow the essential information necessary to win government contracts. The program is also an abundant resource that provides access to Federal and prime contracting executives and a network of veteran-owned small businesses for teaming opportunities.

Since its launch in 2009, VIP GROW has helped 638 service-disabled and veteran-owned small businesses grow. A survey of 255 of the program's graduates determined that 2915 new jobs were created and the size of their businesses increased by an average of 51% within a year of graduating from the Institute. More than 81% of surveyed graduates credited VIP GROW for equipping them to make recent business decisions and avoid unseen pitfalls. Additionally, veteran-owned businesses are more likely to hire, mentor and train other war veterans as they transition to private life, which is a national priority.

"We are honored to give back to the men and women who served our country by providing them with the tools necessary to succeed as government contractors." said Barbara Ashe, President of the Montgomery County Chamber Community Foundation. “We hope this training fosters their success as businesses and employers.”

VIP GROW is a three-day, 27-hour comprehensive certification program. Participants must be a C-level leader in a Veteran-owned small business operating for at least two years with a minimum of 3 full time employees, and experience working on government contracts as a prime and/or sub-contractor to a prime. With volunteer instructors and at no cost to participants, VIP GROW is fully funded by the Montgomery County Chamber Community Foundation, partners, and VIP sponsors.
