The Small Business Enterprise Certification is a race and gender neutral program.
A firm that is currently MDOT DBE certified will automatically be certified as SBE. All other firms that meet the eligibility requirements must apply to MDOT’s Office of Minority Business Enterprise (OMBE) for SBE status. All SBE certified firms will appear in the online MDOT Directory.
Each certified SBE firm must annually submit an affidavit to the OMBE affirming its continued eligibility to participate in the SBE program.
The firm is responsible for listing the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Code(s) that is/are the primary activities of the business. See the following link for NAICS Codes: https://www.census.gov/eos/www/naics/
