The deadline to complete and submit the online nomination form is Monday, September 25, 2023, at 5 p.m. Applications submitted after the deadline will not be accepted. Winners will be announced at the 18th Annual Diversity in Contracting awards ceremony in December.
Applications will be reviewed by the SMBR team, and award determinations will be based on previous award history, City of Austin contract performance, and compliance with the M/WBE and/or DBE Programs. Businesses that have been awarded by SMBR in the past 5 years are ineligible. Nominees for Women and Minority categories must be certified by the City of Austin.
