Having a minority-owned business certification can help you tap into public and private sector programs.

Corporations, the federal government, and state agencies all want to do business with minority-owned companies, and most require that recipients of its funding award a percentage of contracts to minority-owned businesses.  Many large companies also have goals for buying from minority-owned suppliers.

procuThe reason for such mandates is twofold. First, contracting with minority-owned businesses is important to customers - Corporate America understands that you cannot expect minorities to buy things when you haven't done business with minorities. Second, it's responsible – government has an obligation to ensure that all firms in our states have an opportunity to participate in contracts that are paid for with tax dollars.

To meet their objectives, private and public sector firms search for minority-owned suppliers through programs that have formal certification processes. If you're not certified, you can miss out on business ranging from a marketing opportunity to reduced-competition access to a public contract.

To schedule a confidential consultation session, and to find out which of these valuable certifications your business may qualify for, please call the MBDA Business Center-El Paso, at 915-351-6232.
