Minority/Women Business Enterprise (M/WBE) - Obtaining a M/WBE List

​The M/WBE list is used primarily by prime contractors looking for certified M/WBEs in order to fulfill their Business Inclusion and Development (BID) Plan obligations. Once a business is certified, it is automatically placed on the list.

Becoming a certified M/WBE in no way guarantees that a firm will receive a contract or subcontracting opportunity, but it is a good way of getting a firm's name in the hands of the people that may need their services.

How to Obtain a M/WBE List
To obtain a list of certified M/WBEs, contact the ResourceLink Team at (214) 670-3326. The list is available in alphabetical order or divided into the following five categories:

    1. Construction
    2. Architectural & Engineering
    3. Professional Services
    4. Other Services
    5. Goods
