State certifications can help you stand out

If your company is minority-owned, woman-owned, or considered an emerging small business, you may be eligible for certification from Business Oregon’s Certification Office for Business Inclusion and Diversity (COBID). This free certification can help your company stand out in many ways, including on the Energy Trust Find A Contractor page.

As Oregon’s demographics continue to change, COBID certifications may provide additional opportunities for your company as customers seek minority, woman-owned, disadvantaged or emerging small businesses to provide services. COBID certifications are one way to connect with those customers. They are also taken into consideration for state and municipal contracts.
