Accepted Minority and Women Owned Business Certifying Entities
Following BL2018-1419, the Business Assistance Office is responsible for verifying the certification of Minority and Women Owned Business Enterprises that desire to participate in the Equal Business Opportunity Program.
The Business Assistance Office does not certify Minority and Women Owned Businesses, however we accept the certificates of other agencies.
In order for Minority and Women Owned Businesses to participate in the Equal Business Opportunity Program, they must be registered to do business with the City of Nashville and must be certified as a Minority Owned Business, Disadvantaged Business Enterprise under the federal program governed by 49CFR26, or a Woman Owned Business by one of the Certifying Entities. Metro does not have its own separate certification program.
