The Done Deals program has grown wildly over the past eight years. With 25,000 deals reported in 2007, the format changed to one that is easier to read and highlights the “big picture”. The 2nd Generation of Done Deals looks more like a newsletter with interesting, detailed articles about business being done between members. Articles fall into specific categories, such as “Multi-Year Contracts”, “First Time Business Deals” and “Mega Done Deals”. There are 12 categories within which you can report your deals (WBE/WBE or Corp/WBE). Additionally, total spend numbers (reported by Sustaining Members only) are announced each quarter giving readers a chance to see the “big picture” of the business our corporations are doing with WBEs.
Sustaining Members - Starting in January 2008, designate a person in your company to submit quarterly WBE spend numbers between you and local, certified WBEs. The WBCS will provide an easy form to use to provide this information.
Sustaining Members AND WBEs – You can email your done deals (WBE/WBE or Corp/WBE) details to email@example.com. Keep in mind, the reporting process will be simplified, but the deals you report will need to fit into the categories provided. You will get to provide detailed information, i.e., quotes, how the business originated, etc., so that the WBCS can write an interesting article. This process will soon be available online
