MBE CERTIFICATION PACKAGE DETAILS

Our MBE / WBE Certification Package includes the following :

  • Initial interview to lay out the strategy and game plan for your MBE application. A length one hour plus interview process will make sure your firm is ready to apply and that your application will be a success before we begin.
  • A detailed document checklist is created and sent to the client. This will be a list of all the enclosures needed to complete the MBE application.
  • An analyst will compile and complete on your MBE package upon submission to our firm.
  • We review all documentation submitted for potential errors, omissions and issues. The state governments place a high level of scrutiny on MBE application and therefore review all documents as if we were the certifying body.
  • We will communicate with you (by e-mail and phone) all the way through the MBE application process insuring we are staying on the critical path for application completion.
  • An analyst will interview you and prepare the economically and socially disadvantaged narrative(s) that are a critical piece of your MBE application.
  • We will do the entire application, double-checking everything to be sure it meets all State guidelines and we will assemble the entire package (usually 300-500 pages) in a binder with a table of contents.
  • Finally, we will tab all the places in the MBE where your signature is required and we will send the completed package to you so that you can sign and forward it to the reviewing body.
  • When we send a completed MBE application to a client it is ready for the State to review.
