Oneida Total Integrated Enterprises (OTIE) has been named the 2022 8(a) Graduate of the Year by the Wisconsin Small Business Administration (SBA).

Since graduating from the 8(a) program in 2017, OTIE has continued to grow and offer our capabilities in infrastructure and facility engineering, civil, mechanical, electrical, and structural design engineering, environmental services, remediation services, and construction support services to government agencies and commercial customers in the U.S. and around the world.

As part of National Small Business Week, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) highlighted the impact of outstanding entrepreneurs, small business owners, and others from all 50 states and U.S. territories. Wisconsin SBA winners were announced at the virtual Lt. Governor’s Conference on Small Business Development held May 3-6, 2022.

OTIE made use of SBA’s Paycheck Protection Program to mitigate the impact of the pandemic on staff, while executives took a pay cut. Gary Mejchar of First American Capital Corp. nominated OTIE for the award.
