Columbia, MD – April 13, 2005 – The ability to pursue, and win, government contracts has never been more critical for small businesses and the federal market has never been more competitive. For this reason, The American Small Business Coalition (The ASBC) is teaming with Perot Systems Government Services and its ISO 9000 Quality Consortium for Small Business in an effort to deliver added reliable resources to the small business community.

The ASBC and Perot Systems will work together to promote and provide greater breadth and depth of services and capabilities, with a focus on assisting small businesses as they pursue the ever-growing amount of contracts awarded by and on behalf of the government.

“As the government moves to a broader use of performance-based acquisitions, it is essential that small businesses have the tools necessary to assist in the success of the program(s) they support,” said Guy Timberlake, chief visionary officer for The American Small Business Coalition. “The partnership with Perot Systems Government Services is another way The American Small Business Coalition will continue to assist in the development of a stronger small business community for the public and private sectors.”

The American Small Business Coalition is a fast growing community of Micro, Small, Medium and Large Companies working in a collaborative and nurturing environment to foster team-building and the exchange of information related to business opportunities with the United States Government. The ASBC’s mission is assisting small businesses in the acquisition of relationships and business intelligence in the federal sector. The ASBC also provides related education and training to its Members most often from companies participating as Business Members or Partners.

“Perot Systems has been, and will continue to be, committed to furthering the goals and success of the small business community,” said Lisa Hartley, vice president of International Standards Compliance for Perot Systems Government Services. “This effort will enable both Perot Systems and The ASBC to really help strengthen the capabilities of small businesses as they prepare to meet the ever-increasing demands of doing business with the U.S. government, through many channels including the ISO Small Business Quality Consortium. We are excited about this opportunity.”

The ISO 9000 Quality Consortium was created to provide small businesses with a cost effective approach to establishing quality management systems to compete for business opportunities in the federal government and contractor marketplace. It represents a win-win-win situation for small business, large contractors, and the government by assisting small businesses in improving their product/service quality; helping large contractors in acquiring more, and better prepared, subcontractors; and aiding the government by getting better quality products while in turn helping them achieve their diversity goals.

Perot Systems delivers program, mission, and infrastructure support to numerous United States government customers, including the Departments of Defense and Homeland Security, a number of civilian agencies, and the intelligence community. With an emphasis on commitment, reliability, and accountability, Perot Systems delivers results to its clients.
