Apply for Certification or Recertification

Need Help?

Welcome and thank you for your interest in applying for certification with The Port Authority of NY & NJ. We administer the following certification programs:

Once certified as an MWBE or SBE, a business is eligible to participate in our supplier diversity program, which offers unique opportunities for qualified firms such as set-aside contracts and vendor price preferences on commodity and operations services. Subcontracting opportunities are also available for MWBE firms in various procurement categories.

The Port Authority is a certifying partner in both the New York State and New Jersey Unified Certification Programs, and as such, certified DBEs have subcontracting opportunities on federally funded projects in both New York and New Jersey. Our international airports offer retail opportunities to certified ACDBEs.

If your firm is a new MWBE applicant, we offer a one-stop certification application process in collaboration with Empire State Development, Division of Minority and Women’s Business and The New York City Department of Small Business Services, Division of Economic and Financial Opportunity. Please fill out their respective addendums when prompted in the document checklist once you have begun our MWBE certification application.

Please be sure to add panynj@diversitysoftware.com - our official system email address- to your safe sender list so you don't miss any messages from us.
