Effective June 1, 2021, the statutory fees associated with Small, Minority, Women, Veteran, and Disabled Veteran-owned businesses, will no longer be required. There is no longer a fee to apply for certification or recertification. For more information click HERE.

The UCS system is currently adding the 1 year Provisional Certificate type for all first time applications (e.g. any application that is not an Annual Verification or Renewal). While UCS is transitioning to 1 year Provisional certificates for first time applications, some businesses may temporarily receive a standard 3 year certificate. Once the system is updated, the certificate will be transitioned to a 1 year Provisional certificate and the businesses will be notified of the update.
