SDP staff will review submitted applications within 30 days to verify that a business meets Wisconsin Statutory and Administrative Code requirements to be certified as a WBE. Upon approval, an approval letter and WBE Certificate will be emailed to the Business' Primary Contact.
Once certified, the WBE will be listed on Wisconsin's Database of WI Certified Businesses. Contractors, State Agencies, UW campuses, government organizations, and other entities use this database to locate diverse Suppliers.
Although the WBE Certification Period is for 3 years, WBE firms must complete an Annual Update each year and Recertify after 3 years.
