Small Business launches new contract compliance software
Miami-Dade County is pleased to announce a new web-based Business Management Workforce System (BMWS) being implemented and managed by the Small Business Development (SBD) Division of the Internal Services Department. BMWS is powered by B2GNow software.
This new system represents a significant technological advancement and will replace the current manual process of reporting certain contract requirements and increase operational efficiency. This web-based software system is being utilized by over 200 cities, counties, and other public agencies throughout the nation.
BMWS will be accessible, at no charge, to all vendors doing – or interested in doing – business with Miami-Dade County. Key features include the following:
- Online application for Small Business Enterprise (SBE), Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) and Local Developing Business (LDB) certification
- Online registration for the Equitable Distribution Program (EDP)
- Enhanced online SBE, DBE, and LDB Directory, with key-word search capabilities
- Electronic submission of subcontractors for fulfillment of SBE requirements
- Electronic submission of contractors’ utilization payments and verification of SBE payments via the web or a mobile device
- Automated tracking of progress towards meeting SBE goals
- Electronic submission of certified payrolls
- Electronic submission of workforce compliance data
- Automated notifications regarding compliance requirements
- Elimination of/or limited paper-based reporting
County staff will also be able to access BMWS to view their contracts and the status of SBE goals and payments on those contracts, as well as search for information on certified and non-certified firms.
Full implementation of BMWS is scheduled for May 1, 2018. A pilot implementation is currently underway and training on the system continues to be offered both in-person and on-line. The 2018 training schedule is available online. You may register for a monthly hands-on training session conducted by SBD at the Stephen P. Clark Government Center in the “events” tab and free B2GNow-hosted webinars in the “training” tab.
For more information regarding BMWS, please contact SBD at 305-375-3111 or via email.
