Maryland Contracting

eMaryland Marketplace is the State of Maryland's internet-based bid board system for state and local procurement opportunities. Over 200 government organizations use this system to solicit contract opportunities that are over $15,000. Contracts under $15,000 are typically direct solicitations by agency buyers or are posted on the agencies’ bid board.

Maryland Statewide Procurement Control Agencies:

Maryland's Procu​rement Forecast is a searchable database for both recurring and projected opportunities. 

The state offers programs to provide greater access to contracting opportunities for small businesses:

The Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) Program encourages socially- and economically- disadvantaged small business owners to participate in state procurement and contracting opportunities. The Department of Transportation's Office of Minority Business Enterprise​ conducts the certification process for MBE’s.​

The Governor’s Office of Small, Minority & Women Business Affairs serves as a coordinating agency for small business resources for women, minority and small businesses to assist in competing in the public and private sectors. The agency has oversight of the MBE and SBR programs and provides education and training on doing business with the state.

Veteran-Owned Small Businesses programs promote and increase access to state procurement opportunities through goals and price preference programs.
