Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) Certification Program
To assist the EBO program in increasing minority participation, the City of Jackson created the Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) Certification Program. The purpose of the MBE Certification Program is to allow prime contractors to subcontract with Minority Business Enterprises (African Americans, Native Americans, Asian Americans, and Hispanic Americans) or Female Business Enterprises that perform a commercially useful function (i.e. architectural/engineering and professional services, construction, and goods (commodities) and nonprofessional services) in the work of the contract.
In addition, the certification allows businesses to receive email blasts regarding upcoming bids, Request for Proposals, and Statement of Qualifications.
