African American Business Enterprise and Female Business Enterprise

The City of Atlanta has found that African American, Female, Hispanic, and Asian American owned businesses have suffered the effects of racial and gender discrimination in both public and private markets, resulting in a disproportionate award of contract dollars to non-minority or non-female businesses. It is the responsibility of the Office of Contract Compliance to promote full and equal business opportunity for all persons doing business with the City of Atlanta. Small businesses that want to receive certification must apply and meet stringent guidelines.
