Real projects. Real business. Real opportunities. That’s exactly what’s available for small businesses in Broward County, Florida.
The new year is the perfect time to start participating on projects happening across Broward County. Join local businesses reaping the benefits of becoming a certified County Business Enterprise (CBE) with Broward County’s Office of Economic and Small Business Development (OESBD).
OESBD provides local certification programs to support the growth and sustainability of Broward County’s small business community. With Broward County’s Mobility Advancement Program (MAP Broward) on track to fund an estimated $1.68 billion in small business procurement opportunities over what is remaining in the 30-year program, certified firms are needed to participate on eligible projects countywide.
Revenues from MAP Broward (transportation-surtax) are expected to generate an estimated $355 million annually, representing real competitive procurement opportunities for small businesses. A 30% CBE participation goal has been established for eligible projects, providing an estimated $53 million in project opportunities for eligible certified firms every year of the program.
Firms are encouraged to visit OESBD’s website to learn more about certification, project opportunities and to submit a free online application to become a certified CBE firm in Broward County.
