In an effort to ensure that Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs) and Women's Business Enterprises (WBEs) receive a "fair share" of procurement opportunities funded by EPA financial assistance agreements, it is required that all financial assistance recipients negotiate objectives/goals for MBE/WBE utilization.

What are Fair Share Objectives/Goals?

A fair share objective is a goal based on the capacity and availability of qualified, certified MBEs and WBEs in the relevant geographic market for the grant recipient in the procurement categories of construction, equipment, services, and supplies... compared to the number of all qualified entities in the same market for the same procurement categories.
