Austin Texas Prepares Minority Businesses


SMBR workshop to offer construction bidding tips


Small, minority and women business owners are invited to hear tips from City of Austin staff and successful vendors about on preparing construction services bids at a free seminar next week.

“Doing Work with the City of Austin: How to Prepare a Bid” will be offered by the City of Austin’s Small and Minority Business Resources Department from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Nov. 18 at One Texas Center, 505 Barton Springs Road, Room 325.

“This business seminar was requested by our MBE/WBE and Small Business Advisory Committee members who wanted to assist vendors with this invaluable service,” said SMBR Acting Director Veronica Briseño Lara. “In the future we will also host this type of informational session for vendors in professional services and commodities.”

SMBR assists small minority-owned and women-owned businesses as they pursue contracting opportunities with the City of Austin, encourages MBE/WBEs to participate in City contracts, and oversees the City’s MBE/WBE and DBE contracting goals in the areas of construction, professional services, commodities and non-professional services.

For more information about the Small and Minority Business Resources Department, please review the SMBR Web site at or call (512) 974-7677. 


Contact: Blender Hill, SMBR Outreach Coordinator, (512) 974-7677
