The Locally-Based Business Enterprise (LBE) Certification Program works to ensure that firms, regardless of the gender or ethnicity of the owner, doing business in economically deprived areas of the City or employing economically disadvantaged persons, receive no less than 10% of subcontracting opportunities on construction and construction-related contracts directly awarded by the City to contractors. Companies that become certified obtain greater access to and information about contracting opportunities, receive technical assistance to better compete for those opportunities, and benefit from inclusion in the City’s Online Directory of Certified Businesses. The program also provides certified firms access to opportunities to participate in educational workshops, networking events, and an invitation to SBS’ Annual Procurement Fair.

SBS also welcomes all companies, regardless of LBE status, to learn more about government procurement processes through our Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC). The PTAC assists businesses by providing guidance and direction on government vendor enrollment systems, identifying appropriate small business certifications, finding the right contracting opportunities, and responding to government contracting opportunities.
