Austin MBE/WBE Program

The program summary on this page was last updated on 09/20/2018. If any of the information or links are out-of-date, please contact us.

Through the minority-owned and women-owned business enterprises (MBE/WBE) Procurement Program, the City of Austin encourages MBEs and WBEs to participate in city contracting as prime contractors and subcontractors.

Many of the city's contracts have MBE/WBE subcontracting goals, and prime contractors are required to invite MBEs and WBEs to supply goods or services on those contracts.

In addition to using contract goals to promote MBE/WBE inclusion, the city's Small & Minority Business Resources Department (SMBR) holds monthly workshops, surety bonding counseling, and offers access other resources aimed at helping MBEs and WBEs grow their business.

Does this certification expire? Firms must provide an annual no-change affidavit to retain their certification.

Does this program require bidders attempt to make a good-faith effort to meet participation goals? Yes, contractors must make a good-faith effort to meet participation goals on specific projects with such goals attached.
