The Department of Small and Local Businesses Development recently launched its new Certified Business Enterprise online application system designed to simplify and quicken the application process for certification.

Businesses will now be able to submit all required information in the online system without visiting the department's office.

"This is a major step forward for the CBE program," said department director Robert Summers. "The new online application process will dramatically cut down the application process and speed up application approval times."

To assist with the learning the new system, a training session has been scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 12 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Applicants can visit dslbd.dc.gov to register.
