MYB awarded EEO Contracts – We Mind their Business so they don’t have to!

Hendersonville, NC, May 20, 2015 — Last month, Mind Your Business Inc., (MYB), was awarded two new contracts to conduct Administrative Management Inquiries for Federal Government Agencies, and a contract to write Final Agency Decisions for a federal government agency. Headquartered in Hendersonville, N.C., MYB also has an office in Washington, D.C., covering the entire DMV (D.C., Maryland and Virginia), as well as staffing throughout the United States offering Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) services to government agencies. MYB’s EEO professionals have served as EEO Directors, EEO Managers, EEO Specialists, EEO Counselors, EEO Administrative Assistants and EEO attorneys. In 2011, with the economy still suffering and companies cutting their budgets for background screening, Karen Caruso, CEO/President and founder of MYB, elected to diversify as a means to grow the business. This led to their expansion into providing EEO investigations to federal agencies. One of MYB’s most recent contracts came from an Agency, which received positive and noteworthy feedback from other federal agencies that MYB has previously provided EEO Services. “Being recognized for providing outstanding services four years later is very exciting for the company. We are extremely excited about what the future has in store for our EEO Division,” said Caruso. This is the latest in a line of victories for MYB in the federal space, including being awarded its General Services Administration (GSA) Schedule in 2014, for Pre-Employment Background investigations and Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Services under GSA Schedule 738X Human Resources and EEO Services. GSA Schedules are fast, easy, and effective contracting vehicles for both federal customers and vendors. GSA establishes long-term government-wide contracts with commercial companies to provide access to millions of commercial products and services at volume discount pricing. MYB received certification as a Participant in the U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) 8(a) Business Development Program two years ago. It is through this certification that MYB is able to compete for these contracts as well as receive some sole source set-aside contracts. MYB currently provides, or has previously provided, services for multiple federal agencies, including OPM, IMLS, PBGC, BIA, BLM, Army, DOI, and DOE. EEO Services offered by MYB:

  • EEO Counseling
  • EEO Investigations
  • Final Agency Decision Writing (FAD)
  • EEO Counseling Training (32-Hour and Refresher)
  • EEO Investigator Training (32-Hour and Refresher)
  • Writing Acceptance and Dismissal Letters
  • Personalized EEO Consulting
EEO Division Staff Members at MYB:
  • Heidi Griffin, EEO Director
  • Renee Heider, EEO Manager
  • Evon Lee-Patton, EEO Consultant/Technical Advisor
  • Onsite EEO Investigators and EEO Counselors
