The Minority Business Enterprise Advisory Committee (MBEAC) makes recommendations to the Chair of the MBEAC or his/her designee on behalf of the Secretary of Transportation regarding MBE/DBE certification. The MBEAC consists of twelve members from State agencies and the general public. MBEAC meetings are scheduled biweekly. All owners, directors, and employees as requested by MDOT shall attend the appropriate MBEAC meeting. A firm must be represented at the MBEAC by disadvantaged persons representing a minimum of 51 percent of the ownership of the firm.
More detailed information on the MBEAC can be found in the MBE Program Manual on page 51.
MBEAC proceedings will be recorded in accordance with Title 3, Section 3-306 of the General Provisions Article of the Annotated Code of Maryland.
