Small Business Program

The purpose of the Small Business Program is to enhance contracting opportunities for small businesses. The program targets and gives preference to qualified small businesses in the procurement of goods and services when the DTA awards contracts for non-federally funded purchases of $50,000 or less (simplified acquisition process).

The DTA’s policy ensures that all small businesses have an opportunity to participate in the procurement process. To participate in the program, a firm must:

  • Qualify as a small business as defined by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) 13 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 121 through 201.
  • Self certify your business by signing, notarizing, and returning the Declaration of Certification (Word Document) to: Finance Director, DTA; 2402 West Michigan St.; Duluth, MN 55806

Note: It is the firm's owner(s) responsibility to submit an updated Declaration of Certification affidavit every two years from the bidders' initial date of submission.
