Certifications 101


DBE


Disadvantaged Business Enterprise



DBEs are frequently required on contracts that received federal funding from the EPA and the U.S. DOT. Program compliance and certification is usually administered by state's DOTs.

M/WBE


Minority and Women Business Enterprises



M/WBE requirements are usually found on state and local contracts. However, some federally-supported contracts, like those backed by the HUD may also require M/WBE outreach.

SBE


Small Business Enterprises



SBE programs are commonly implemented by state and local governments as race-neutral efforts to include smaller firms in public contracting. The SBE designation is usually defined by the SBA's size standards.

DVBE


Disabled Veteran Business Enterprises



There are only a few DVBE programs, but we're still equipped to help you reach out to DVBEs. States that have DVBE programs include: Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Maryland, and New York.

HUB


Historically Underutilized Businesses



HUB programs are similar to DBE and MWBE programs in that they help socially and economically disadvantaged businesses take part in public contracting.

Others


Section 3, Local & Emerging Businesses, etc.



There are many other programs at all levels of government, such as Section 3 and Local Business Enterprise programs, that require that prime bidders perform good faith efforts.
