Equitable Distribution Program

Miami-Dade County created the Equitable Distribution Program (EDP) to facilitate increased contracting opportunities to community based Architecture and Engineering (A&E) firms, as well as afford County department’s access to qualified professionals for smaller projects in an expedited fashion without necessitating a formal solicitation process.  

The program is structured to equitably distribute projects in all County technical certifications to the program participants through a centralized rotational system. Each firm’s position, in the technical certification pools, is based on their prior contracting opportunities with the County.  The EDP is applicable for all county projects with an estimated construction cost of $2 million or less and/or study activities less than $200,000 per the thresholds established in Florida State Statute 287.055 for continuous contracts.

Online registration for EDP is now available

Consultants may apply to participate in the EDP Program via the automated Contract Compliance Software. Paper applications are no longer accepted.
