Supplier Diversity


In order to further stimulate the local economy, the Central Florida Expressway Authority assists qualified Disadvantaged, Minority, and Women Business Enterprises (D/M/W/BE) with several opportunities. They can bid as prime contractor, form a joint venture with established non-minority and minority contractor(s) or bid as a subcontractor. It is CFX's policy to encourage equal opportunities for minorities and women businesses. CFX is committed to assisting the business community in sustainability.

Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program

One of the initiatives to assist the small business community is the CFX Small Sustainable Business Enterprise (SSBE) program.
