- January 26th: WBE ACTION ITEM
ONLY the female owner will receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org with directions to create or update the company’s MatchMaker profile in the MatchMaker tool. The WBE will need to block schedule times within the tool so that no meeting can be scheduled at a time when the WBE is not available. If the owner is not attending, please make sure she is aware of the email and knows which staff person to forward it to. If no email is received by the owner, please email email@example.com for instructions.

All WBE profiles must be completed in the MatchMaker tool. Those WBEs that do not complete a MatchMaker profile, will automatically be excluded from the 1:1 MatchMaker selection process.

After the February 9th WBE deadline, participating National Corporate and Government Members will begin to review eligible WBE profiles to identify WBEs that sell products/services in alignment with their current sourcing needs.
