Oregon MWESB Program

The program summary on this page was last updated on 08/20/2018. If any of the information or links are out-of-date, please contact us.

Oregon's Office for Business Inclusion and Diversity (COBID) is in charge of the state's efforts to expand contracting opportunities to small businesses, including those owned by minorities and women.

Through COBID, and company can become certified as a disadvantaged business enterprise (DBE), which are often needed for federally-funded construction contracts, or a minority business enterprise (MBE), women business enterprise (WBE), or an emerging small business (ESB), which are needed on state-funded contracts.

Once certified, firms are added to the state's searchable certification database.

Does this local/state program offer reciprocal certifications with other local/state programs? COBID must make certification decisions for certifications provided by COBID; there are no automatic reciprocity programs.

Does this certification expire? An annual "no change" affidavit must be provided in order for a business to retain its certification. On the third anniversary of its certification, a business must submit a more thorough Renewal Application.
