MBE Institute for Public Policy, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, is structured to educate and provide minority businesses and public/private sector buying entities with public policy resources and information on minority business issues and programs that support capacity building and the meaningful and sustainable inclusion of MBEs in contracting and other procurement opportunities.
The MBE Institute for Public Policy (MBEIPP) was leading a statewide contingent of small minority business owners, advocates and buying entities to the Texas Legislature in Austin on Wednesday, March 20, 2017. The contingent included representatives from Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston and the Southwest Minority Supplier Development Councils (MSDCs), in addition to numerous minority contractor associations and chambers of commerce from all regions of the state. The primary goal was to engage legislators and public administrators in discussions regarding policies and processes that enable MBEs to continue to contribute to the economic recovery throughout Texas.
This day was centered on advocating, educating and developing relationships with public officials.
This one-day educational event provided participants the opportunity to become more familiar with the policies and the public policy processes impacting MBE business growth and development.
