The City of Philadelphia is committed to diversity. City government aims to work with minority, women, and disabled-owned businesses (M/W/DSBEs) on public contracts as often as possible.
The Office of Economic Opportunity (OEO) helps City departments do this. Through the OEO registry, M/W/DSBE-certified businesses get preference in the City contracting process.
The City aims to fill at least 35 percent of all contracts through minority, women, or disabled-owned enterprises. Non-City entities can also access this list. This process creates opportunities for diverse companies.
The registry lists M/W/DSBEs that have been certified by an approved certification agency. Are you interested in working with an M/W/DSBE?
