Doing Business

The Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority (MPEA) is committed to the inclusion of minority and women owned business enterprises (MBE and WBE) in our overall procurement and contracting processes across the campus. As such, we have established a Business Diversity Department to ensure participation by MBEs and WBEs in the procurement process and to monitor contract compliance to meet MBE and WBE goals.
