Certification 101*An Overview of Minority- & Women-Owned Business Enterprise Certification Programs

Thursday, November 16, 2017 - 3:00pm to 5:00pm

Are you a small, minority or women business owner interested in learning about Certification but confused about all the terms?

Join Small & Minority Business Resources for Certification 101 as our Business Development Counselors discuss the various types of Certifications offered by the City to qualified small, minority and women business owners.

Why should you become certified?

  • The City of Austin has a lot of work available and even more coming available with our Mobility Bond and our partnering department such as Austin Energy and Austin Water to name a few
  • It is a marketing tool. Perhaps your company would like to participate on a City or government contract but you don't have the capacity to bid on the entire job? As a certified vendor, you have the opportunity to bid on a portion of the work to provide the goods or services that you specialize in
  • Our certified firms are searchable on our department's website; therefore, City department and other entities will view your contact information along with the services that you have available online and contact you for a bid.
