Rockville Connect
Minority, Female and Disabled-Owned Businesses
Rockville is committed to fostering increased participation by minority, female and disabled-owned (MFD) businesses in the city’s procurement process.

The city's MFD outreach program provides education and information about Rockville’s procurement opportunities for MFD businesses

Rockville’s Procurement Division serves as an information resource and fosters a positive environment for MFD businesses. City staff works to identify proactive ways to include MFD businesses in city contracting by publicizing procurement opportunities at conferences, seminars, workshops and networking functions and by submitting articles about the program to minority and local publications.

The city also works with Rockville Economic Development, Inc. and other partners to provide procurement training to MFD businesses. Rockville provides bid information and technical assistance to MFD business owners, and upon request, discusses why a bid did not result in a contract award.
