The Council frequently lists contracting opportunities for businesses. Interested parties are encouraged to regularly review the Council's list of publicly advertised solicitations for contracts.
The Council participates in two small business programs:
Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Programs (DBE)
Metropolitan Council Underutilized Business Program (MCUB)
The Met Council recently updated the DBE/MCUB Subcontracting Policy and Procedure. Among other enhancements, the procedure change now requires bidders/proposers to submit DBE/MCUB documents at the time of bid. This will likely be a change in business practice and process for many of our bidders and proposers. Contact the Office of Equal Opportunity at DBE@metc.state.mn.us or 651-602-1163 if you have any questions regarding the new policy or procedure.
