Denver EBE, MWBE, SBE, SBEC Program

The program summary on this page was last updated on 03/30/2018. If any of the information or links are out-of-date, please contact us.

The City of Denver's Office of Economic Development (OED) is responsible for administering Denver's minority and women business enterprise (M/WBE), emerging business enterprise (EBE), and small business enterprise (SBE) programs. The OED certifies eligible companies with the appropriate business designation(s), maintains a directory of certified firms, and establishes M/WBE, EBE, and SBE subcontractor participation goals on individual procurement contracts, particularly construction awards.

Does this program require bidders attempt to make a good-faith effort to meet participation goals? Project goals are assigned to all City and County of Denver construction projects. Depending on the project, these goals may include SBE, MBE, and WBE goals (among other types of goals).
