The goal of the Business Development Division (BDD) is to recruit, develop and retain emerging minority-owned, woman-owned and locally based business enterprises.
Entry into public sector work remains a challenge for MWLBE. To reduce these barriers, BDD helps qualified MWLBE firms do business with the SCA. The Business Development Division recruits firms through community outreach and participation in various minority trade shows, conferences and forums.
The SCA's MWLBE program provides opportunities to participate in the SCA's contracting and RFP processes and gain valuable experience. To be eligible for opportunities offered by Business Development Division, a business must become MWLB certified and prequalified.
