The SLBE Program is a race- and gender-neutral program specifically designed by WSSC to encourage contracting with small local firms located in Prince George’s and Montgomery counties. The SLBE Program furthers the Commission’s objective of fostering broad-based competition within the small and local business community. It encourages economic growth by offering benefits, particularly to those small firms headquartered in Prince George’s and Montgomery counties. These benefits include contract-specific subcontracting requirements, bid preference, evaluation point preferences for request for proposal, and the Sheltered Market Program (SMP). Total Contract Payments In FY 2016, our total contract payments to SLBE firms (prime and validated subcontractor payments) totaled approximately $31 million as depicted in Figure 17, with approximately $27 million in total contract payments for Construction Services.
