In honor of National Small Business Week, the City of Austin's Small & Minority Business Resources Department (SMBR) presents Certification 101 which is an overview of the various types of Certification offered by SMBR. 

For-profit business owners interested in participating on local government contracts are invited to come out and learn more about:

  • Small Business Enterprise (SBE) which is a race and gender neutral certification for single scoped construction projects
