What is M/WBE?
M/WBE stands for Minority and Women-owned Business Enterprises. The City of Rochester has an M/WBE Utilization Plan that ensures that African-Americans, Hispanic Americans and Women-owned businesses receive a percentage of the total contract amount for each public works project. These goals depend on the whether the project is street construction or general/building construction.
Contracts solely for materials and supplies do not count toward the M/WBE utilization goal.
