New MBE Program Subgoals Take Effect August 1, 2020

MBE Subgoals are part of an ongoing effort to: remedy discrimination for minority- and women-owned businesses, ensure that various racial, ethnic and gender subgroups participate in contracting at levels that would be expected in the absence of discrimination, foster the overarching policy of diversity in contracting for the State; and promote further compliance with the State’s MBE Program. Consistent with the statutory requirements set forth at State Finance and Procurement Article, Section 14-302(a)(1)(iii) and the most recent Disparity Study, the Governor’s Office of Small, Minority & Women Business Affairs issued an update to the State’s Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) Program Subgoals in a Compliance Bulletin on 7.20.2020.

The MBE Program Subgoal Worksheet must be completed and signed for all procurements that have an overall MBE goal.
