Search for or Become a Missouri Certified M/WBE Vendor

Use this directory to search for certified minority or women owned business vendors or get detailed information about a vendor you already work with including specialty areas and contact information.

Learn how to become a certified M/WBE. We will help you with the application process, complete the initial application as well as answer any questions.

M/WBE Certifications

There are advantages of obtaining the State of Missouri M/WBE certification. Certification as a Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) and/or Woman Owned Business Enterprise (WBE) provides greater opportunities for these businesses to bid on state contracts. All certified M/WBE vendors appear on the Office of Equal Opportunity Directory of Certified M/WBE Vendors. Both contractors and state agencies use this site as a resource in soliciting certified minority and/or female participation for ongoing projects. This certification covers all state agencies except for Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT), which participates in the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program.

How to Become M/WBE Certified

To become M/WBE certified, the first question to answer is “Should I apply?”

  • Is your firm at least 51% owned by a woman or minority individual(s) who also controls the firm?
  • Is the minority or woman owner a U.S. citizen or lawfully admitted permanent resident of the U.S.?
  • Is your firm organized as a for-profit business?

If you answered “Yes” to all of the questions above, you may be eligible to participate in the State M/WBE program. See more on Eligibility/Application
