Outreach Programs

The objective of the Outreach Program is for departments, consultants, and contractors to outreach to all businesses, including Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs), Women Business Enterprises (WBEs), Small Business Enterprises (SBEs), Local Business Enterprises (LBEs), and Disabled Veteran-owned Business Enterprises (DVBEs), to provide equal opportunity for vendors, service providers, and contractors to compete for business with the County.

The Outreach Program requires that the County perform solicitation to a minimum of three vendors.  It does not establish a requirement for awarding contracts. A minimum of 50% of the vendors solicited must be an SBE, MBE, WBE, DBE, DVBE or LBE.
