Companies certified by HMSDC are required to renew their certification each year. It is the company’s responsibility to maintain current certification yearly. The certification expiration date will be listed on the certificate and in the company’s online profile. While registered contacts may receive a courtesy notification warning that the certification is due to expire, HMSDC is not responsible for ensuring that a Minority-owned Business Enterprise (MBE) gets recertified. Recertification remains the sole responsibility of each MBE.
The processing time for an MBE recertification is 7-10 business days. HUB recertification will be completed approximately 10-15 business days after your recertification is approved. If you have a pending contracting opportunity HMSDC offers expedited recertification for an additional fee of $150.00. The expedited recertification guarantees your HMSDC & HUB applications be completed in no more than 2 business days. To apply for expedited certification, please click here.
The applicant is also responsible for submitting the required documents for recertification. These documents include:
- Completed recertification application
- Signed, dated and notarized affidavit/declaration page
- Complete and signed copy of the previous business year’s federal tax returns including all schedules
- End of year financial statements as of December 31, of the current year. (balance sheet and profit/loss)
- Non-refundable processing fee
