For immediate release.
Waltham, MA – August 12, 2010 – NWN Corporation announced today that they have received
certification as a Diverse Supplier (woman-owned business) by the state of Massachusetts.
This state certification allows NWN Corporation to qualify for additional state work while also receiving
extra points on state and local government RFPs for its diverse status. Prior to this certification, NWN
Corporation had been nationally certified as a woman-owned business.
In response to this certification Managing Director of NWN Corporation Dr. Jane Linder stated, “Many
diverse suppliers are small companies with narrow skill sets. NWN is very different. With 11 offices
across the nation, we are one of the leading IT solutions companies in the country. We have a full range
of technical capabilities and an abiding passion for customer success. Now our customers can also get
credit for working with a diverse supplier.”
Dr. Jane Linder is also the co-lead of NWN’s Smart Government business unit. This certification will
assist the Smart Government business unit in pursuing RFP projects where it can help state and local
governments improve services and increase effectiveness by connecting the silos. Over the past several
years, Jane and her team have helped customers with solutions that include no-wrong-door benefits
portals to serve citizens better, SNAP to school meals systems that help ensure no child goes hungry,
and Medicaid to prisons systems that help states cut Medicaid spending dramatically.
