Business Diversity Development
Here at St. Louis Lambert International Airport, we have a large, dynamic, and efficient operation that depends on working with contractors and entrepreneurs in the St. Louis area, regardless of their size or background. Our Business Diversity Development (BDD) department is the certifying body for the City of St. Louis’ local Minority and/or Women Business Enterprise (MWBE) program, as well as STL’s federal Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) and Airport Concessions Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (ACDBE) programs.
The BDD is committed to offering the best environment for companies to receive the top technical assistance and certification training, develop partnerships with prime contractors in their industries, and compete successfully for Airport contracts and other opportunities.
In 2016, Minority Business Enterprises (MBE) and Women Business Enterprises (WBE) received 39% of the Airport’s local spending and other professional services. We are extremely proud to report that this increased to 49% in 2017. You can view our full 2017 BDD Annual Report below. These numbers show that we are dedicated to helping disadvantaged businesses compete for, win, and perform on meaningful contracts for the Airport. See how we can help you.
