Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) Certification Program
To assist the EBO program in increasing minority participation, the City of Jackson created the Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) Certification Program. The purpose of the MBE Certification Program is to allow prime contractors to subcontract with Minority Business Enterprises (African Americans, Native Americans, Asian Americans, and Hispanic Americans) or Female Business Enterprises that perform a commercially useful function (. architectural/engineering and professional services, construction, and goods (commodities) and nonprofessional services) in the work of the contract.
In addition, the certification allows businesses to receive email blasts regarding upcoming bids, Request for Proposals, and Statement of Qualifications.

An interview essay is designed to give the reader a general impression of the interview subject and to present his or her thoughts on a select group of topics. It also offers the opportunity to develop deeper insights by analyzing the interviewee's responses within a larger context. Interview essays are a common school assignment, and provide useful skills for those interested in journalism, or just being good writers in general. There are several formats that fit into the category, but a good interview essay of whatever type can make the reader feel as though he or she were asking the questions.
