An Oregon Small Business Advantage Opportunity

If you're a small business located in the State of Oregon you can take advantage of the Emerging Small Business (ESB) certification propgram to give your business an advantage.

This program is for Oregon small businesses seeking contracting opportunities on projects specifically designated for ESB participation. This program is race and gender neutral and has two tiers.

There are two categories from which you can choose to participagte in:

Tier 1 is for small businesses with 19 or less employees whose average annual gross receipts over the last three years are under $1,699,953 for construction firms and under $679,981 for non-construction-related firms. An ESB-certified business must:


  • - be in Oregon (principal place of business must be in Oregon, according to tax filings)
  • - be properly licensed (e.g., construction contractors board, engineers)
  • - have a business name registered with Oregon Corporations Division, and
  • - be independently owned (cannot be subsidiary or parent company).

 Tier 2 is for Oregon-based firms with 29 or less employees whose average annual gross receipts over the last three years are under $3,399,907 for construction-related businesses and under $1,133,302 for non-construction businesses.
