Strategic Sourcing

Prince George's County Code, Section 10A-136, requires the County Purchasing Agent to structure the procurement procedures and activities of the County to facilitate and encourage the award of at least thirty percent (30%) of the total dollar value of all County contracts awarded, directly or indirectly, to minority business enterprises.

The County government actively encourages Local Small Minority Business Enterprises (LSMBEs) that provide quality products and services at competitive pricing to participate in our contracting ad subcontracting activities. We believe in the value of a well-rounded business base.

To this end, the Supplier Development and Diversity Division works collaboratively with the Contracts and Procurement team to ensure that the economic advantages provided by local, small and minority businesses are directly reflective in the sourcing of the County's procurement opportunities.
