Minority/Women Business Enterprise

It is the policy of the City of Dallas to involve certified Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprises (M/WBEs) to the greatest extent feasible on the City’s construction, general services, and professional services contracts. It is the policy of the City of Dallas to encourage the growth and development of M/WBEs that can successfully compete for contracting opportunities.

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.
