Do Business With Denver

Welcome to the Division of Small Business Opportunity (DSBO).

Helping a larger, more diverse field of businesses compete for government contracts is an important way that we help small businesses grow and increase their revenues. Many small companies do not realize that they can, by gaining certification for various qualifying factors, access a much broader world of opportunity. Qualifying factors include being minority- or woman-owned, or otherwise being a disadvantaged business.

Our team performs compliance and monitoring on a wide range of city projects and contracts. In addition to granting certifications and providing outreach and capacity-building for small firms, DSBO sets participation goals for public projects and ensures that contractors are paid promptly.


You may search by industry, certification, location, or company name ("Search Vendor Directory") in our DSBO database.
