    Businesses may be certified in any of the following categories; however, only a maximum of 12 points can be applied toward any contract award. In evaluating invitations for bids (IFBs), contracting personnel apply a percentage reduction in priceaccording to the CBE designation. In evaluating requests for proposals (RFPs), contracting personnel applypoints to proposal evaluations according to CBE designation. DSLBD also certifies joint ventures in the CBE Certification Program.

    • The Business Certification Division evaluates businesses headquartered in the District to determine their eligibility to become a Certified Business Enterprise (CBE).

    • The DC Government directs spending to CBEs, and they in turn support and contribute to job creation and the city tax base, strengthening the local economy.

    • The CBE Program provides contracting preference for local businesses so they can better compete for DC Government contracts and procurement opportunities.
