    Assisted MBE Search

    Assisted MBE Search is a service provided by the Council to help you find potential suppliers based on your requirements and specifications. 

    How it works: submit your MBE request (with requirements and specifications) to the Certification Manager.  We will scrub the national database for potential matches by effectively adding a second-level vetting process for prospective suppliers.  We will provide you with a clean list of qualified MBEs sorted by product/service, industry, capability, capacity or any other filter depending on what you need.   If necessary, we will work with other NMSDC affiliates to connect you with additional MBEs from other regions.
