SMALL MINORITY WOMAN-OWNED BUSINESS ENTERPRISE (SMWBE) PARTICIPATION
1. Program Intent. It is the MNAA's objective to promote, encourage, and stimulate participation of local, small, minority and women-owned business enterprises (SMWBE) within its organization and the economic community served by it by providing maximum opportunities to participate in contracts, programs and all related business activities of the MNAA. MNAA will apply the local small minority woman-owned business participation levels where expenditures and purchases are made with non-federal funding, and to all contracts, leases, management agreements, consultants, prime contractors, subcontractors, respondents, bidders, or bidders involved in the performance of a commercially useful task for MNAA.
2. SMWBE Participation Level. The attainment of the level established for this Contract is to be measured as a percentage of the total dollar value of the Contract. The level established for this Contract is Zero Percent (0%). Although there is no required participation level on this service, Bidders may still commit to a participation level. Bidders who wish to commit to a participation level should complete Exhibit "A" SMWBE PARTICIPATION FORM and submit it with the Bid. Its purpose is to provide a list of subcontractors to be used by Contractor and identify a breakdown of certified companies and associated dollar values which will be expended by the Contractor to achieve the SMWBE Participation Level.
