The City of Rocky Mount MWBE Program strives to involve MWBE Companies in its purchasing process by:

  • Providing minority and women owned businesses the equal opportunity to participate in the bidding process for the purchase of equipment, apparatus and supplies.

  • Providing minority and women owned businesses the equal opportunity to participate in the bidding process for building renovations and construction contracts.

  • Providing one-on-one information sessions as requested on past bids they are interested in bidding on.

  • Prohibiting discrimination against a business because of race, creed, color, religion, national origin or handicap.

The City of Rocky Mount doesn't have a Minority & Women Business Enterprise Certification process. However, the City does recognize and accept certifications from other entities within the State of North Carolina. A "minority business" is a business that is at least 51% owned and controlled by one or more minority persons or socially and economically disadvantaged individuals. See NCGS143-128.2
