Contracting Opportunities

Opportunities for small business participation on Miami-Dade County Architectural and Engineering (A&E) projects have been expanded through the use of Small Community Business Enterprise - A&E measures.

The Equitable Distribution Program (EDP) and Small Business Enterprise- A&E programs were designed to provide contracting opportunities to small and medium size architectural and engineering firms. Additionally, the A&E selection process was streamlined into a one-step, pre-qualification.

Miami-Dade County Ordinance No. 98-30 requires all firms, including A&E firms with annual gross revenues in excess of $5,000,000 must have an affirmative action plan and procurement policies filed and approved by the County’s Office of Capital Improvements (OCI) as a condition of contract award. Also, Resolution R-1040-93 requires all A&E firms must provide information in their proposal, as to their furtherance and compliance with their approved affirmative action plan, when responding to the County’s advertisement for the acquisition of A&E services.
