SMALL MINORITY WOMAN-owned BUSINESS ENTERPRISE (SWMBE) PARTICIPATION.  It is the MNAA’s objective to promote, encourage, and stimulate participation of local, small, minority and woman-owned business enterprises (SMWBE) within its organization and the economic community served by it so as to provide maximum opportunities to participate in contracts, programs and all related business activities of the MNAA. MNAA will apply the local small minority woman business participation levels where expenditures and purchases are made with non-federal funding, and to all contracts, leases, management agreements, consultants, prime contractors, subcontractors, respondents, bidders, or proposers involved in the performance of a commercially useful task for MNAA.


Bidders are encouraged to meet SMWBE participation levels established by the Director, Business Diversity Development, or, if unable to meet the participation level, engage in good faith efforts to joint venture, subcontract, or contract for supplies or services with SMWBEs. The attainment of the SMWBE participation level established for this contract is to be measured as a percentage of the total dollar value of the contract. The SMWBE participation level established for this Contract will be 9.27% MBE and/or WBE. This program maintains a list of certified SMWBEs, which can be found on the Authority’s website at or certified DBEs located within the state of Tennessee, which can be found on the TNUCP Directory (TDOT) website at or contacting Business Diversity Development at (615) 275-2718. Proposers are encouraged to inspect this list to assist in locating SMWBEs for the work. Other SMWBEs may be added to the list in accordance with MNAA’s approved SMWBE Program. Credit toward the SMWBE participation will not be counted unless the SMWBE to be used is certified by MNAA.


RIGHT TO REJECT ANY AND ALL BIDS.  MNAA proposes to award the Contract to the lowest responsive and responsible Bidder, provided it has met the goals for SMWBE participation or, if failing to meet the goals, has made an acceptable good faith effort to meet the established goals for the SMWBE participation.  Bidder is advised that MNAA reserves the right to reject any and all Bids submitted, to waive any and all informalities, irregularities and/or technicalities in any Bid or Bid Guaranty, to accept any Bid deemed advantageous to it and to negotiate changes, deletions, or additions to these Contract Documents with the successful Bidder.
