Government Contracting Opportunities — Certification
The City of Tucson has a Small Business Enterprise program which offers incentives to small businesses interested in doing business with the City of Tucson on contracts administered by the Procurement Department, which may include, bid preferences and subcontracting goals for construction, goods, services, and materials.
