Nina’s second area of responsibility is registering/certifying all businesses that want to qualify as a Small Business and/or a Minority/Women owned business. These credentials (SBE) are needed to compete under the State Small Business Set Aside Act. The portfolios headed by Nina led to her being appointed to spearhead a state wide task force reviewing all of the small business rules and regulations. Major changes emulating from that responsibility resulted in a more business friendly, less red tape environment for SMWBEs.
