It is the goal of Towson University to afford MBEs, certified by the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT), the opportunity to participate in all contracts. MBEs may participate either directly as the prime or indirectly through subcontracting opportunities. The university will attempt to achieve the result that a minimum of 29 percent of the total dollar value be made either directly or indirectly from Maryland-certified MBEs. MBE firms are encouraged to contact the university MBE/SBR Liaison at 410-704-2171or MBE AT_TOWSON.
To find a minority business, you can visit the MDOT MBE directory. More information is available through the Governor's Office of Small, Minority & Women Business Affairs.
The SBR program, created in 2004, is a race-neutral program that allows small businesses to participate as direct, prime contractors on state contracts. The SBR certification process is part of the eMaryland Marketplace Advantage (eMMA) registration. SBR firms are encouraged to contact the university MBE/SBR Liaison at 410-704-2171 or MBE AT_TOWSON.
