The Minority and Women-owned Business Enterprise (M/WBE) Program is a joint venture launched by the City of Greenville and Greenville Utilities (the City’s public utilities) to provide minority and women-owned businesses equal opportunity to do business with the City and GUC.
From painters to printers, the City and GUC require a variety of goods and services which allow us to serve Greenville every day. The City Council and Greenville Utilities Commissioners want all business owners to have the opportunity to provide quality services at the best prices.

It is the policy of the City of Greenville and Greenville Utilities Commission to provide minorities and women equal opportunity for participating in all aspects of the City and GUC's contracting and procurement programs, including but not limited to, construction projects, supplies and materials purchases, and professional and personal service contracts.
Putting Our Words to Work…
The MWBE Program is committed to not just talking the talk but also walking the walk. We do this by increasing the opportunities of the MWBE community within public contracting and providing firms with the tools that will help them become successful when opportunities arise. Some of the tools in our toolbox include increased knowledge, greater access, and linkage to resource networks that work to assist business.
Return on Investment
We believe that the participation of minority and women-owned businesses is an investment. Not only are the quality and diversity of goods and services manifest but the subsequent growth of business equals greater economic expansion, more jobs, and increased revenue to build our future.
