An EDGE-certified business may file a complaint or request for mediation through the Ohio Business Gateway.
Steps to Certification
The enabling statutes for the EDGE program are R.C. 123.152. The regulations that govern the program are found in Ohio Adm. Code Chapter 123:2-16.
We at EOD are excited to partner with the Ohio Business Gateway Modernization Project in an effort to make doing business with the State of Ohio easier and more efficient. Whether completing a Unified Application for the Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) or Encouraging Diversity, Growth and Equity (EDGE) program, applying for a new Certificate of Compliance or Affirmative Action Program Verification, or even completing your monthly Workhour Utilization Reports (I-29s), it is our hope that this improved process will be easy and drastically improve the way your business interacts with state government.
Wondering how to locate the forms you need to complete on the Ohio Business Gateway? Here are some tutorial videos the Gateway team put together to help you log in and add service areas (and forms) to your profile.
