About the City's M/WBE Program

The City of New York is committed to encouraging a competitive and diverse business environment. To that end, the City’s Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprise (M/WBE) Program was created to increase contracting opportunities and participation among City-certified M/WBE firms. Generally, the M/WBE Program applies to  construction, professional and standard services contracts, as well as goods contracts under $100,000. The Program is led by the Mayor's Office of M/WBEs and administered in partnership with the Mayor's Office of Contract Services (MOCS) and the Department of Small Business Services.
