Virginia Department of Small Business and Supplier Diversity (SBSD) reviewed the list of certified and pending Small, Women, and/or Minority (SWAM) companies. They issued a letter to businesses who had an invalid NIGP code (one ending with 000) – the number ending in ‘triple zero’ is a category and not an actual code. Any invalid code(s)/description(s) will be deleted from your profile by February 23rd.

EXISTING SWAM Certified Companies: The letter includes instructions on updating your NIGP Codes.
APPLICATIONS PENDING Companies: Do NOT to change the NIGP codes in the electronic application at this point. Doing so will reset the submitted date of their application and result in the 60-business-day waiting period to be reset. To correct the codes, fill out the SWAM notice of change form and send to SBSD, and the agency will update the codes.
