SMWBE Lists and Forms
Below are instructions for generating a list of approved Small, Minority, Woman(MWBE), and Service Disabled Veteran Owned Businesses (SDV) that are registered with Metro. If you are aware of other businesses that you believe meet our Small Business Eligibility Standards, or who are approved as a MWBE who do not appear on a generated list, you may still pursue partnership with them, however, their status as an SBE, MWBE, or SDV must be approved by Metro prior to the opening of your response to Metro. If you have any questions regarding Small Business Status Confirmation Process. please contact the BAO at 615-880-2814.
How to run an approved list
Please note that Metro provides the detail contained in any generated list as a service to offerors who desire assistance in locating potential SMWBE or SDV subcontractors and suppliers, however, proposers are responsible for making contact with any vendors that are being considered for subcontract opportunities to ascertain said vendor's experience, capabilities, or capacity to perform. Additionally, offerors are responsible for ensuring that the approved status of these vendors is still valid at the time any solicitation response is submitted to Metro.
When solicitations require the use of the "Subcontractor Form", please use the form to indicate the Metro approved small businesses you intend to use. This completed form should be included with your response.
