Fluor Idaho Enriches Small Businesses Through Purchases of Goods, Services
Fluor Idaho, LLC, which manages cleanup operations for the DOE’s Idaho National Laboratory Site, exceeded its overall small business goals by 12 percent for the recently completed fiscal year, contributing more than $69 million to local and regional businesses for goods and services.
“Since Fluor Idaho was awarded the cleanup contract in 2016, we’ve made it clear that purchasing goods and services from small businesses is a key business strategy for the company,” said Fluor Idaho Small Business Liaison Jennifer Lloyd. “Small businesses are a pleasure to work with and provide a level of customer service that is unmatched.”
During the fiscal year, Fluor Idaho did business with women-owned, veteran-owed, small disadvantaged, service-disabled veteran-owned, and HUB-zone businesses predominantly throughout Idaho and the western region of the U.S. A HUB-zone, or Historically Underutilized Business, is a company located in a rural or urban community, which is given preferential access to federal contracts.
