The Minority- and Woman-Owned Business Enterprise Program [M/WBE] is designed to ensure the equitable participation of bona fide minority and woman-owned businesses in the New York City procurement process. The M/BWE Program affords certified M/WBE's the opportunity to receive a share of the total dollars spent annually by the City in the procurement of goods, services, and construction. All certified firms will be listed in the City's official Directory of Certified Minority- and Woman-Owned Business Enterprises. Firms must be certified and be at least 51% owned, operated, and controlled by a minority and/or a woman, operating for one year, and located in New York City and participating surrounding counties. Firms must also be located in New York City or have a significant tie to New York City's business community.
