SBR Program Prime Contracting Program for Small Businesses


SBR Program

Prime Contracting Program
for Small Businesses


February 7, 2020

Attention Small Business Owners

Maryland Flag Small Business

Small businesses registered in Maryland's Small Business Reserve (SBR) Program have exclusive access to over over $400 million in prime contracts annually. Are you in the SBR Program?
This race- and gender-neutral program is open to all small businesses that meet the eligibility standards.
SBR certification takes place within eMaryland Marketplace Advantage (eMMA), the state's new e-procurement platform launched in July 2019. Are you in eMMA? (Firms registered in the old system were not automatically carried into eMMA.)
Please register in eMMA and become a certified vendor in the SBR Program today. Registered vendors receive email notifications when a contracting opportunity matches their interests; they can view open solicitations, respond to solicitations, view awarded contracts, search vendors, and much more. This is a free service and registration takes place online.

Enhance Your Vendor Profile

If your firm is currently a certified SBR in eMMA, now is a good time to fine-tune your vendor profile. In particular, be sure to:
  • Verify your Tax ID number has been entered correctly. 
  • Enter all the contact information for your company, including those fields that are not mandatory. This helps procurement officers reach you when necessary. 
  • Assign user roles to all contacts. Each vendor must assign a Primary Contact and it is best practice to also assign an Admin (both can be the same person). You can have as many contacts as you like. Be sure each one is assigned a user role and his/her individual contact information is provided.
  • Carefully and purposefully select your product and service codes. The selections you make will have a direct impact on the email notices you receive as solicitations are posted on eMMA.
Read the Quick Reference Guides for step-by-step instructions (with screen shots) on how to maintain your vendor profile in eMMA.
