About

The Office of Minority and Women’s Business Enterprises leads the Statewide M/WBE program as the sole agency that certifies minority- and women-owned business enterprises to participate in public contracting and procurement. Our purpose is to be a vital and trusted resource for businesses owned by minorities, women and other under-represented communities to gain access, visibility, and contracting opportunities in procurement.  We work to promote equity in how Washington State spends its resources in the private sector by eliminating barriers to equitable participation in public spending and contracting. These efforts help small businesses owned by minorities, women, and veterans to obtain more government contracts which strengthens our communities, makes our economy more resilient, and improves the quality of life for all Washingtonians.
