The need to digitize records helped one SMB get a multi-million dollar contract from the government.

An effort to digitize the records of millions of the country's Veterans has given a $13 million contract to a small business.

Entrepreneur Technology Update

The Department of Veterans Affairs announced today it has awarded DOMA Vector and DOMA Technologies the job of providing Record Conversion Services to more than 230 Veteran Service Centers in the U.S., Virgin Islands and the Pacific.

Not only is this good news for small businesses like DOMA, but the contract is likely to mean the hiring of hundreds of employees to help in completion of the job which may go far in helping boost the overall economy.

"We'll be hiring hundreds of individuals to handle the document preparation, scanning, indexing, quality control and logistical support as well as management personnel and expand our conversion facilities in Virginia Beach, " said Leticia Feliciano, DOMA Technologies CEO.

This is also good news for minority- and women-owned business as DOMA fits both criteria as a Minority Business Enterprise and Woman Owned Business (MBE/WBE). It is equally fitting that DOMA received the contract from the VA as it is considered a Veteran Owned Small Business (SVOSB).
