CERTIFICATIONS

Yasmin L. Stump Law Group, PC (YLSLG) is the only law firm in Indiana certified as a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) by the State of Indiana, Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) by the State of Indiana, City of Indianapolis and with the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).

When YLSLG is included as part of a project team in the area of land acquisition as an added value service on federal, state and City of Indianapolis-funded projects, the firm’s inclusion as a DBE and/or WBE-certified firm, in response to a Request for Proposal or in a Letter of Interest, promotes preference of the project team. Additionally, YLSLG’s services in the area of land acquisition contributes to the achievement of DBE and/or WBE/Minority Business Enterprise (MBE)/Veteran’s Business Enterprise (VBE) project goals and increases overall scoring for these goals. YLSLG is registered to do business with the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT), and as an added value service, it does not need to be pre-qualified with INDOT.

Many non-governmental acquiring entities, such as utility companies, also have WBE participation goals. Since YLSLG is certified as a WBE by the WBENC, these companies’ retention of YLSLC as outside legal counsel or inclusion of YLSLG as part of a project team in response to a Request for Proposal submitted to these companies contributes to achievement of WBE participation goals.

Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Certified

DBE Certified in Indiana

YLSLG is certified as a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) in the area of legal services with the State of Indiana through the Indiana Department of Transportation. This DBE certification is significant when YLSLG participates on teams for federally-funded projects.  DBE participation goals are established for each project involving any federal funding. When consultant engineering firms apply for selection on federally-funded projects, preference is given to those project teams with DBE-certified firms.  Additionally, when an engineering firm is selected on a federally-funded project, it is scored on meeting the DBE participation goals established.  If the DBE participation goals are exceeded, the scoring is elevated.  Conversely, if the DBE participation goals are not met, it adversely affects the scoring.

Certified WBE Women's Business Enterprise

WBE Certified in Indiana & City of Indianapolis

YLSLG is certified as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) in the area of legal services with the State of Indiana through its Department of Administration. This WBE certification is significant when YLSLG participates on project teams for state-funded projects. INDOT establishes WBE/MBE/VBE participation goals for each project involving state funding.  When engineering firms apply for selection on state-funded projects, preference is given to those project teams with WBE, MBE and VBE-certified firms.  Additionally, when an engineering firm is selected on a state-funded project, it is scored on meeting the WBE/MBE/VBE participation goals established.  If the WBE/MBE.VBE participation goals are exceeded, scores are elevated.  Conversely, if the WBE/MBE/VBE participation goals are not met, it adversely affects the scoring.

YLSLG is also certified as a WBE in the area of legal services with the City of Indianapolis.  WBE/MBE/VBE goals are established for locally-funded Indianapolis projects. YLSLG’s participation as part of a project team for legal services in land acquisition contributes to the consultant engineering firm achieving WBE/MBE/VBE participation goals on Iocally-funded Indianapolis projects.
