Overview

The Office of Minority and Women-Owned Business (M/WBE) and Community Relations is responsible for ensuring that the Office of General Services (OGS) and its host agencies comply with the provisions of New York State Executive Law, Article 15A and the rules and regulations set forth in 5NYCRR, Part 140 – 144. These policies are intended to promote and encourage participation by minority and women-owned businesses in state contracting opportunities.

In addition, the Program staff interact with individual M/WBE companies to assist them in doing business with New York State and OGS. Finally, the Program facilitates the active engagement of community-based ethnic groups in special programs and events sponsored by OGS. For more information, select from the topics below:
