Help us build one city, rising together. Mayor Bill de Blasio has pledged to ensure that the City levels the playing field for Minority and Women-Owned businesses (M/WBEs) competing for City contracts.
The City has set aggressive goals, including a commitment to award the following:
• More than $16 billion to M/WBEs by 2025
• At least 30 percent of the dollar amount of City contracts to M/WBEs by 2021
We are encouraging all New York City business owners, both M/WBE and non-M/WBE, to provide information about their experiences doing business, or attempting to do business, with the City.
To help strengthen the City’s M/WBE Program, the City has contracted MGT of America, Inc. to conduct a new disparity study to explore potential changes to its M/WBE Program. The City’s disparity study is separate from the State’s disparity study.
