The Bank has a self-certification process to classify small businesses and socially and economically disadvantaged small businesses. We currently accept similar self-certifications filed with other Federal Reserve Bank offices and certifications made by the Small Business Administration.



The Bank entered into 395 contracts with socially and economically disadvantaged small businesses in 1991 with a total value of $456,767.04. Also in 1991, the Bank entered into 3,360 contracts with small (non-minority) businesses. These contracts had a total value of $14,596,835.37. Each of the contracts in these two groups were executed in 1992 and were of various durations. As the Bank does not have a policy to provide preference to woman-owned businesses or socially or economically disadvantaged businesses not classified as small, it does not collect separate data on such businesses. The total numbers and values of contracts shown in this paragraph include both woman-owned and non-women-owned businesses.

The attached table, referenced as Appendix A, lists the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland's 1991 expenditures by commodity with socially and economically disadvantaged small businesses. During 1991 the Bank did not enter into agreements with socially and economically disadvantaged small businesses for financial services, investment banking, underwriting, accounting, legal services, asset management, or asset disposition.
