Benefits of NYC Certification

A City representative is assisting a business owner at the S.B.S M.W.B.E Procurement Fair

Local Law 1 of 2013 encourages New York City agencies to buy more goods and services from certified businesses. We also help certified businesses through the following opportunities:

Free advertising in the NYC Online Directory of Certified Businesses, which connects City agencies and other buyers with certified businesses. Through the Directory, vendors can market their goods and/or services to potential buyers.
Mentorship programs and workshops to help M/WBEs build and strengthen operations to compete and perform better on contract opportunities.
One-on-one Technical Assistance provides consultation services while you are in the process of drafting a bid proposal and provides post-selection feedback.
Access to networking events for certified businesses, including the yearly Citywide Procurement Fair, an SBS signature event for M/WBEs only.
