Small Business Opportunities

​​​​Broward County wants to increase working with local businesses. The Office of Economic and Small Business Development (OESBD) is actively seeking local small businesses for numerous Broward County procurement opportunities. We are recruiting businesses that provide goods and services which the County buys to get certified in our local small business programs. Special efforts are being made to identify local firms in categories where few firms are currently certified through targeted recruitment initiatives. ​
