Since 1988 we’ve been helping local, state, and regional government agencies as well as prime contractors, find and connect with qualified minority-owned (MBE), women-owned (WBE), (together MWBE) and service disabled veteran-owned (SDVOSB) businesses through our award-winning publication, Minority Commerce Weekly (MCW).
We’re trusted by thousands of women, minority, and disabled veteran subcontractors looking for contracting opportunities to grow and sustain their businesses. Through the pages of MCW, they’re able to find Requests for Proposals (RFP), Requests for Applications (RFA), and Invitations for Bid (IFB) from local, state and regional government contracting agencies who are not only mandated by legislation to demonstrate that they’ve made a “Good Faith Effort” to reach underutilized businesses but who genuinely believe the projects they oversee and the local communities they support, will be better off for it.
Tier 1 contractors turn to Minority Commerce Weekly when bidders lists, matchmaking events, and government directories fall a little short of delivering just the right candidates for a particular project. MCW also helps these primes prove they’ve made a good faith effort to comply with regulations to solicit active participation of diverse suppliers for the projects they’re working on. Additionally, other prime contractors newly looking to get into government sector work have found that partnering and contracting with MWBEs and SDVOSBs opens doors that were previously closed to them.
For 30-years we’ve been the bridge between these communities fostering growth and economic development across regions. To learn how you can find qualified companies to work on your projects or to identify projects to bid on, browse our website or give us a call. We’d love to hear from you.
