WBE Certification Process

​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.​
