District of Columbia CBE program

One of the roles of Washington, D.C.'s Department of Small and Local Business Development (DSLBD) is to certify eligible companies as Certified Business Enterprises (CBEs). As a CBE, a company can receive preference when it comes to the award of D.C.'s public contracts. As a CBE, a business can have various statuses, including: Local Business Enterprise, Small Business Enterprise, Veteran Owned Business, and Disadvantaged Business Enterprise.

Does this certification expire? All new certifications are valid for three years from the certification date. A self-recertification process may be performed online through the same portal by which new applications are made, if a business meets certain criteria for such self-recertification.

Does this program require bidders attempt to make a good-faith effort to meet participation goals? No, but a CBE may be eligible to receive certain preference points assigned to their bid on certain projects.
