SMALL DIVERSE BUSINESSES
The Department of General Services’ Bureau of Diversity, Inclusion & Small Business Opportunities (BDISBO) is responsible for assisting small and diverse businesses, including Minority Business Enterprises, Women Business Enterprises, Veteran Business Enterprises, Service-Disabled Veteran Business Enterprises, Disability-Owned Business Enterprises, and LGBT Business Enterprises in competing for Commonwealth contracting opportunities.
Through the Verification Program, BDISBO reviews and verifies self-certified Small Businesses as Small Diverse Businesses (SDBs) when they hold certifications from approved third-party certifiers.
For complete details on how to become a Small or Small Diverse Business or to participate in the two programs, visit the Small Business Contracting Program and Small Diverse Business Program pages.
