Debi Nicoli, President & CEO, Teltek
In 2016, Teltek became a Maryland Certified, Woman-Owned Minority Business Enterprise (MBE), Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) and Small Business Enterprise (SBE).
Teltek has been providing phone systems, IT support, and voice and data cabling since 1996. Earning these certifications allows us to reach an even broader community. Debi Nicoli, Teltek’s President & CEO, looks forward to the new business relationships that will result from this achievement.
What is the significance of these certifications?
MBE/DBE/SBE designations level the playing field by giving companies of all sizes an equal opportunity to conduct business. Maryland’s Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) Program was created in 1978 to ensure that socially- and economically-disadvantaged small business owners were able to participate in procurement and contracting opportunities. The Office of Minority Business Enterprise (OMBE), a division of the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT), evaluates applications and awards these certifications to companies which meet the stringent criteria.
