Small Business, Wage and Workforce Programs and Subcontractor Reporting via BMWS

Small Business Development's (SBD's) successful implementation of Miami-Dade County’s Business Management Workforce System (BMWS) was completed with LCPtracker, a web-based payroll management system, which went live on May 1, 2019. This web-based system is utilized to apply for small business certifications, manage and report on County contracts, and to track compliance with SBE Program measures, Workforce Program requirements, and subcontractor payments.

The use of BMWS is mandatory for firms contracting with Miami-Dade County for the submission and verification of subcontractor payment information; LCPtracker is required for the submission of certified payrolls for contracts with wage requirements. Therefore, attending a hands-on training session is strongly encouraged. You may register for a free monthly hands-on training session conducted by SBD at the Stephen P. Clark Government Center under Events and free B2GNow-hosted webinars under Training. For more information regarding BMWS, contact SBD at 305-375-3111 or via email.
