Security of the WBENCLink2.0 system and your information is top priority. All submitted documents are treated with the utmost confidentiality. The WBENC Sworn Affidavit details our commitment to confidentiality of your application materials. Once the application is submitted, RPO staff can view the application during their review only if they explicitly have the required level of user access. All actions to access, view, update, and comment on your application are logged for auditing purposes.
During the Certification Review Committee meetings, the file is reviewed by the Committee. Any Committee member(s) in a competitive industry do not have access to the file, nor are they present during any discussion of your application. Additionally, staff and Committee members sign Confidentiality Disclosure statements agreeing to keep all information confidential and proprietary with the understanding that any disclosure could cause harm to the applicant. WBENC and the RPOs take your privacy and the confidentiality of your information very seriously.
