Minority and Women's 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.

Contract Goals

For the purpose of these contracts, the following goal has been established:

Twenty percent any combination for minority persons—defined as an individual who is African American, Hispanic American, Asian American, American Indian or disabled—or for women exclusively, regardless of race or ethnicity, pursuant to Baltimore County's Minority and Women's Business Enterprise Program.

Certification Required

Minority and women business firms must be certified to be counted toward the goal. They may be certified by either the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) minority business certification program or by 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 the Baltimore County Department of Public Works and Transportation.
