Minority and Woman-Owned Business Enterprise Program
The Minority and Women-owned Business Enterprise (M/WBE) Program connects businesses owned by minorities and/or women with opportunities to sell their products and services to New York City agencies. The program's goal is to promote fairness and equity in City procurement processes by providing services designed to strengthen the ability of certified M/WBEs to increase their capacity and effectively contribute to the City's economy. 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 and networking events, and an invitation to SBS’ Annual Procurement Fair.
SBS also welcomes all companies, regardless of M/WBE 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.
