MTA's Tier 1 Small Business Mentoring Program (SBMP)
The MTA seeks to increase, facilitate and encourage the participation of small businesses, including Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprises (M/W/BEs) by providing a supportive framework for eligible firms to develop and grow within the construction industry and to establish stable, long-term business relationships with the MTA.
MTA's Small Business Mentoring Program — Tier 2 (SBMP-Tier 2)
Upon successful completion of a four-year MTA mentoring relationship, a company is eligible to complete a four-year advanced program that provides eligibility to bid on projects valued up to $3 million. The contracts will be awarded directly without a construction manager's participation in order to prepare the firm to transition to active and independent contract work with the MTA. Firms must obtain a surety bond to participate.
