Maryland Environmental Service (MES) has an aggressive Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) Program in place to maximize the business it conducts with qualified MBE businesses.

MES actively encourages minority-owned firms to participate in the MES procurement process. Business opportunities with MES exist in the areas of construction, architecture/engineering, commodities, maintenance, and a variety of other services. We aim to achieve and/or exceed the State of Maryland's established goal for contract dollars awarded to certified minority business enterprises.

Becoming MBE Certified

The Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) administers the State of Maryland’s MBE certification program. There are specific eligibility criteria for certification to assure that only bonafide MBE certified businesses participate in the program. For additional information on MBE applications and certification, please call 410-865-1269 or 800-544-6056 or visit the MDOT MBE website.

Identifying Certified Minority-Owned Businesses

Contractors requiring assistance in locating certified MBE businesses are encouraged to obtain a certified MBE Directory. The directory can be viewed and sorted online at MBE Directory.
