Welcome to the Office of Business Opportunity (OBO)!  Our office strives to ensure participation of local, small, veteran-, minority- and woman-owned businesses in providing goods and services to Orange County Public Schools. Through implementation, management, and monitoring of the district's Minority and Women-owned Business Enterprise (MWBE), Local Developing Business (LDB) and Veteran Business Enterprise (VBE) programs, the Office of Business Opportunity seeks to ensure OCPS purchases from small and diverse businesses. In support of the district's mission, to lead our students to success with the support and involvement of families and the community, the Office of Business Opportunity promotes economic investment in the local community. When the district purchases from diverse and small businesses, it has a positive fiscal impact on the local economy; thereby, benefits the students of Orange County Public Schools.

Purpose

The Office of Business Opportunity supports the district's goals of sustained community engagement and operational efficiency by ensuring that funds used to support educational excellence are spent locally with small and diverse businesses; thereby, supporting the economic vitality of the community. Investment in the local economy benefits the families of Orange County students.

Here on the website you will find information about the district's MWBE, LDB, VBE and Apprenticeship policies. In addition, you will find information on certification and a listing of currently certified MWBE, LDB, and VBE contractors and vendors in our Provider Directory. Lastly there are links to a listing of current district opportunities and upcoming events. If you have any questions, please contact us at 407-317-3739.
