New Certification Application Deadline

The Mid-States MSDC is providing a guide for submitting new applications for certification to ensure quality service to all potential certified MBEs. Our goal is to process all certification applications within 45 business days of receiving a completed file. A completed file is considered one that is submitted with all information completely filled in on the application and all supporting documentation as it pertains to your business and business structure. If your file is received incomplete, we will notify you of any omissions and you will have an opportunity to return all requested materials. Once you have submitted the information, the 45-60 business day processing period begins. Our Board of Directors meets every second Friday of each month to review certification applications. A site visit will be scheduled and performed prior to the board meeting. In order for your application to be reviewed during any given month, the Mid-States MSDC must have received a completed file by the application deadline date outlined below.
