Certification as a small business provides opportunities, particularly for woman and minority-owned firms such as Aura, to team with larger companies in an effort to glean knowledge and experience in the industry. These business enterprises also provide a benefit to primes in that many federally funded projects have subcontracting criteria requiring the utilization of such entities. Aura is certified under the California Unified Certification Program, which provides reciprocity in most states within the Continental U.S.

Certifications are currently held in the following locations:

  • California – Unified Certification Program (SFMTA, BART, SFMTA, SVTA, SamTrans, etc.)
  • Commonwealth of Virginia
  • Denver Regional Transit District (RTD)
  • Diversity Supplier – Pacific, Gas and Electric (PG&E)
  • Houston Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA)
  • Maryland Department of Transportation (MTA)
  • New Jersey Transit Authority (NJT)
  • Port Authority of Allegheny County (SEPTA)
