  • Small Business Enterprise (SBE)
  • Minority/Woman-Owned Business Enterprise (MWBE)
  • Veteran Owned Enterprise (VOB)
  • Disabled Veteran-Owned Business Enterprise (DVOB)

To access the service, you will first need to create a login account. You will also need to enter the first 9 digits of your New Jersey Tax/Employer Identification Number (9 digits) and the Business Name Control(first four characters of your business name).

Once you are certified, you will receive electronic reminders about filing to maintain your certification(s) and you will be able to return here to file for re-certification.
