About the Academy

The "Businesses in Development" B.I.D. Certification Academy is a 12-week program designed to provide research based instruction to Historically Underutilized Businesses in the State of Texas. In coordination with the State of Texas Comptroller's Office and input from purchasing agents across the State, Prairie View A&M University developed a strict curriculum that teach small business how to successfully identify and complete bid contracts with private and public agencies across the State.
