Minority, Women and Small Business Enterprise Program

  • The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education is committed to promoting full and open access to business opportunities with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools by proactively seeking diverse suppliers and building relationships through a competitive process. Therefore, minority-owned, women-owned, and small business enterprises (MWSBE) and other responsible vendors shall have a fair and reasonable opportunity to participate in the CMS procurement process.

    The goal of this site is to serve as a source of information for all vendors and prospective bidders who want to do business with CMS. In addition, interested vendors will better understand how to do business with the school system, available small business assistance, certification requirements, and upcoming bid opportunities.

    If you would like to be included in the vendor database, please use the Vendor Profile button below.  Please note, the vendor database is an information repository for schools and departments to search for companies that provide a good or service.  This does not guarantee you will be awarded a contract or purchase order.  Opportunities will be shared with you via email or phone call. If you have any questions, please contact the Supplier Diversity team at supplierdiversity@cms.k12.nc.us.
