Diversity Business Enterprise

Diversity Business Enterprise Program

Our district Diversity Business Enterprise (D.B.E.) program works to form partnerships with local enterprises that are included in the following categories:

  1. Ethnic Minority Business Enterprise
  2. Women Businesses Enterprise
  3. Small Business Enterprise
  4. Service-Disabled Veteran Businesses Enterprise

In partnering with Metro Nashville Public Schools, prime vendors and consultants are considered to be part of our 1st Tier. Our 2nd Tier includes subcontractors, sub-consultants, and sub-suppliers. Both tiers are subject to our DBE program.
