​Business Inclusion and Development

The Small Business Center – Business Inclusion and Development (BID) Team maintain a M/WBE list that is used primarily by prime contractors looking for certified M/WBEs in order to fulfill 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.

Minority/Women Business Enterprise (M/WBE) Certification

The City of Dallas is a member of the North Central Texas Regional Certification Agency (NCTRCA), Dallas Fort Worth Minority Supplier Diversity Council (DFWMSDC), and Women Business Council-Southwest (WBC). These agencies certify M/WBE ownership and control and provide M/WBE certification services for the City of Dallas. The City reserves the right to accept M/WBE certifications issued by other certifying organizations or agencies that use the same or similar certification criteria as the certification agencies listed above. Self-certification does not meet the City's M/WBE certification requirements. Dallas also recognizes Native American-owned businesses with tribal cards associated with that business as M/WBE.
