Minnesota's commitment to diversity and inclusion

The State of Minnesota is committed to diversity and inclusion in its public procurement process. The goal is to ensure that those providing services to the State are representative of our Minnesota communities and include businesses owned by minorities, women, veterans, and those with substantial physical disabilities. Creating broader opportunities for historically under-represented groups provides for additional options and greater competition in the marketplace, creates stronger relationships and engagement within our communities, and fosters economic development and equality.

Whenever possible, MnDOT strongly encourages the use of Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE's), Targeted Group Businesses (TGB's) and Veteran Owned Businesses (VET).

Important note

The TGB and the DBE programs are different programs.  If a project has a TGB goal set, then responders must be looking at TGB firms for the goal.  Likewise, if a project has a DBE goal set, then responders must be looking at DBE firms. TGB and DBE are not used interchangeably.  For additional information about small business programs, please visit MnDOT’s Civil Rights website at mndot.gov/civilrights.
