SMBR is governed by the following documents: Minority-Owned and Women-Owned Business Enterprise Procurement Program Ordinance, Minority-Owned and Women-Owned Business Enterprise Procurement Program Rules and Disparity Study.

MBE/WBE Procurement Program Rules

The Ordinance and Rules are based on the outcomes from our Disparity Studies.  The City of Austin has currently hired NERA Economic Consulting to conduct a Disparity Study in conjunction with our partners Travis County and Austin Independent School District (AISD).
