 Summary Analysis

How many new applications for certification did OMWBE receive?

After declining for the last three quarters, the number of incoming new state applications increased (132) over the same period of FY10 (129) and the previous quarter. However, the number of new federal applications was less than the previous quarter and for the same period of FY10. In contrast, the number of firms submitting annual updates and recertifying with the federal program increased during the fourth quarter over the same period as FY10 and the previous quarter. Similarly, requests for additional NAICS codes from currently certified firms also increased for both periods. These metrics illustrate currently certified firms are continuing to find value with M/W/DBE certification.
