    Small Local Business Enterprise Program

    The Small Local Business Enterprise Program is a commitment to stimulating economic development and promoting equal opportunity for small businesses in Bullitt, Jefferson and Oldham counties in Kentucky. Qualifying projects range from $30,000 to $149,999.99 and contracts are awarded based on the lowest, responsive, responsible bid.

    Local Labor Preference

    MSD projects are paid for with public funds. Our Local Labor Preference ensures that more of these dollars will remain in the community for the benefit of the local economy.

    On Monday, December 18, 2017, the MSD Board voted to approve a new threshold for MSD’s Local Labor Preference for construction contracts. The new threshold is for construction contracts of more than $5 million. Previously, MSD procurement regulations required a Local Labor Preference for construction contracts of more than $10 million.

    Local Labor is defined as individuals who have a primary legal residence within Bullitt, Henry, Jefferson, Meade, Nelson, Oldham, Shelby, Spencer and Trimble counties in Kentucky; and, Clark, Floyd, Harrison and Washington counties in Indiana.
