Small Business Reserve Programs

Own a small business? Maryland's Small Business Reserve consists of three programs to provide greater access and opportunity for small businesses seeking to do business with the state:

  • The Small Business Reserve Program targets small businesses registered with the Department of General Services where certain procurements may be designated as small business reserve only.

  • The Small Business Preference Program allows certified small businesses to enjoy a price preference over non-certified small businesses competing for the same contract award, with additional preferences for veteran-owned companies.

  • The Veteran-Owned Small Business Enterprises Program establishes a 0.5 percent participation goal to increase contracts and subcontracts for veteran-owned companies.
