Small Business Reserve Program

  • The Maryland Small Business Reserve Program is committed to the growth and success of small businesses. Beginning October 1, 2004, designated State agencies were required to award a minimum of 10% of its contracting dollars for bid solely by small businesses.  This program allows small businesses to bid for state contracts without competing with larger, more established companies.

    University employees are encouraged to utilize minority, small, and disadvantaged vendors when making purchases. A list of Small Businesses is available on this website and may be found on
