Perin has been on a roll of late so it’s always great to receive some recognition. Thank you to Chez Oxendine of the Tribal Business News for the chance to share our recent achievement.
DENVER, Colo. — Perin Investigations LLC has become one of the first Native American-owned discovery and investigations firms to obtain 8(a) certification from the U.S. Small Business Administration.
The Denver, Colo.-based company helps clients involved in legal battles collect and organize data such as cell phone records, emails, social media posts and online content relevant to the cases.
The company, co-founded in 2018 by Peter Smith and Erin Perczak, announced its certification in early April. The minority-owned business designation will allow Perin Investigations to serve as a preferred contractor for federal work.
Obtaining 8(a) status brings a small business a number of benefits, such as set-asides, which limit the competition in a given field for federal contracts, and sole-sourcing, which help businesses avoid the bidding process by awarding contracts directly.
