Anchorage, Alaska – ASCI Federal Services LLC (ASCI) is proud to announce that it has been awarded the Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) certification by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). This certification helps small businesses owned, operated and controlled by women to compete for federal contracts. SBA conducts a meticulous process to certify and demonstrate small business’ commitment to diversity and success. The federal government’s goal is to award at least 5% of all federal contracting dollars to women-owned small businesses each year.
“We are honored to officially be designated as a certified Woman-Owned Small Business (WOSB),” says Christine Hopkins, ASCI CEO and Majority Owner. “Going through the process to document our compliance with the rigorous standards set by the SBA took us about a year. We are both excited and proud to be able to now call ourselves a WOSB.”
ASCI became a majority woman-owned business in 2021, with Christine Hopkins holding 51% ownership of the company. Christine joined ASCI in 2013 and within six years was appointed into the role of President, moving into the role of President and CEO six months later. Christine is a member of the National Small Business Association (NSBA) Leadership Council and a volunteer in numerous organizations.
