On May 3, 2012, Jeremy Rappoport, President and founder of Rappoport Development Consulting Services LLC announced final approval by the CCR (Contractors Central Registration) that RDCS LLC is certified as a small business vendor and consultant for government contracts.
The SBA (Small Business Administration) defines a small business by the number of employees or annual revenues. Small businesses are not dominant in their field.
Small business certifications are like professional certifications; they document a special capability or status that will help a small business compete in the marketplace.
Many government agencies require that some percentage of the procurements be set aside for small businesses.
“I think certifying RDCS LLC as a small business will definitely help the company compete for government contracts.”
Because the government sets aside contract work specifically for small businesses, general contractors and consultants can gain a competitive advantage using certified small business sub-consultants.
As a certified tree arborist and certified risk assessor, C-27 California licensed landscape contractor, professional horticulturist and land development professional, Mr. Rappoport offers environmental consulting services including
tree inventories, tree construction protection and preservation plans, best management practices, specifications, field monitoring, observations and reports, tree appraisals, tree risk assessment, tree health assessment and tree management programs.
Jeremy states: “Environmental consultants now have a certified small business consultant for arboriculture, landscape, horticulture and land development sub-consultant they can turn to for sub-consultant proposals while gaining credits and opportunities awarded by the government for using a small business.”
RDCS LLC provides certified arborist, certified tree risk assessment, landscape, horticulture and land development professional consulting for residential and commercial property owners, home owner associations, property managers, agencies, home builders and environmental consulting firms.
RDCS LLS provides legal expert witness consulting services for defendant and plaintiff attorneys and insurer in the specific areas of expertise including arboriculture, tree expert, certified arborist and certified tree risk assessment, landscape expert, horticulture expert and land development expert.
