Purchasing Opportunities – Charles County

Small Local Business Enterprise (SLBE) Program

The SLBE Program was established in 2012 by the Charles County Commissioners to encourage a positive impact on the growth and prosperity of small local firms and the economy of Charles County by using its market power in its purchasing of goods and services to benefit these firms. In order to qualify for the Program, businesses must first be certified in the State of Maryland’s Small Business Reserve (SBR) Program, and then be certified by the Purchasing Office as a “local” business. Once fully registered, SLBE firms are eligible for preferences in County procurement subject to the SLBE Program.
