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 will be utilized to apply online for Small Business Enterprise (SBE) certification, manage County contracts, and track compliance with SBE Program measures, Workforce Program requirements, and subcontractor payments.

The use of this web-based system will be mandatory for firms contracting with Miami-Dade County for the submission and verification of payment information and certified payrolls.  Therefore, attending a hands-on training session is strongly encouraged. 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.
