Charleston County Contracts and Procurement

 

 

 

 

Small Business Enterprise Program

 

Full Details can be found at www.charlestoncounty.org.

This is a race and gender-neutral program, created by Charleston County Council ordinance to attract small businesses from anywhere in the country to participate in fulfilling the County’s contract and procurement needs.
 
Businesses that currently lack the capacity to compete for County contracts can receive business counseling and guidance to help increase their capacity. In some instances, bonds can be decreased or waived to allow SBEs to compete. This program can assist small businesses in becoming ready to participate as subcontractors on large projects. In fact, the ordinance passed by Council in September 2007, requires that contracts of $25,000 or more use certified SBEs as subcontractors. Smaller contracts and purchases also have SBE requirements.
 
If your business has gross sales receipts not exceeding $7.5 million annually, has been in operation for at least the past twelve months, and is actively managed and controlled by the owner, you may be eligible for certification.

SBE Certification Procedure

1.      Complete the one-page Charleston County certification at www.charlestoncounty.org
2.      Supply the supporting documentation listed on back of the application

 

That’s all there is to it!
