EPA Administrator’s Award for Outstanding Accomplishments in Support of Small Businesses
Congratulations to the US Government Environmental Protection Agency Region III Small Business Program Team (Tiffany Cooper, Hana Hyland, Sidney Ozer,
and Al Pinero) on their receipt of the EPA Administrator’s Award for Outstanding Accomplishments by an EPA employee or group in Support of Small Businesses
Impacted by EPA Regulations. This award is for their demonstration of outstanding achievements in working with, and addressing the concerns of, small
businesses that are impacted by EPA regulations.
Region III’s Small Business Program Team worked collaboratively with external small business assistance providers to conduct outreach to small businesses
and enhance environmental regulation compliance in FY 2016 by engaging with over 1000 small businesses at 12 outreach events. The team, along with several
federal acquisition professionals, became charter members of the Philadelphia Federal Executive Board’s (FEB) Mid-Atlantic Acquisition Council (MAAC).
As members of the Small Business Sub-Committee, the team educated owners while promoting procurement opportunities for small businesses, small disadvantaged
businesses, women-owned businesses, HUB Zone businesses, and service-disabled veteran owned businesses.
In addition, the team played an instrumental role in devising and implementing an Acquisition Day to help reduce the burdens and impacts on the regulated
small business community. This event hosted participants from 12 federal agencies and 2,013 contracting professionals. Another example of the team’s
exemplary leadership and small business outreach is highlighted by their support of the Women in Public Policy ChallengeHER half-day training event.
This event focused on participants of the Women Owned Small Business (WOSB) Set-Aside Program looking to become more effective players in the government
contracting arena. The team provided four educational sessions: What WOSB’s Can Do to Help Create Set-Asides?, Working with Federal Buyers, Research and
Marketing – Doing Your Homework, and Doing Business with the U.S. EPA. This event successfully brought together 72 WOSB’s and 49 federal contractors to
increase awareness of and reduce the burdens regulated small business owners face.
