OSMBA’s staff provides program services to firms on an individual counseling basis as well as workshops. We are responsible for overseeing the efforts of the state agencies as they plan and implement efforts intended to overcome special problems related to MBE participation initiatives.
OSMBA’s technical assistance is comprised of seminar training, one-on-one consultations, MBE goal setting, potential vendor lists, participation reports, and dispute resolution. We also provide assistance for procurement officials, prime suppliers and general contractors to design and implement effective supplier diversity strategies into the procurement and subcontracting process.
