The Minority and Women's Business Enterprises Division (MWBE) acts on behalf of the state of Indiana to actively promote, monitor and enforce the standards for certification of minority, women and veteran business enterprises. The division was developed in 1983 by the state of Indiana in response to Public Law 34 (I.C. 4-13-16.5 and 25 IAC-5) to provide equal opportunity to minority and women enterprises in the state’s procurement and contracting process.
Public Law 34 also created the Governor's Commission on Minority Business Development that is now known as the Governor's Commission on Minority and Women's Business Enterprises. Commission members are advocates for minority and women’s enterprises in state contracting and are active in their respective regions to assist in achieving the MWBE goals for the state of Indiana.
Governor Mike Pence signed SEA 564 on April 25, 2013, expanding veteran-owned small business opportunities in Indiana. Learn more about the Indiana Veteran's Business Enterprises Program here.
