Minority Business Enterprises Requirements
It is the policy of Baltimore County, Maryland that minority business enterprises and women owned businesses shall have the maximum opportunity to participate in performance of contracts financed in whole or part by County funds for all projects.
For the purpose of these contracts, two goals have been established:
Goal 1: 15 percent for minority persons—an individual who is African American, Hispanic American, Asian American, American Indian or disabled, pursuant to the Baltimore County Business Enterprise Program.
Goal 2: Five percent for women exclusively, regardless of race of ethnicity, pursuant to Baltimore County's Minority Business Enterprise Program.
Minority and Women Business firms must be certified. They may be certified by either Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) minority business certification program or by the Baltimore City's minority business certification program. To be used as part of a consultant team for a county professional services contract, the firm must still be prequalified with Baltimore County Department of Public Works.
