Historical Facts


North Central Texas Regional Certification Agency Historical Facts In June 1989, an Interlocal Cooperation Agreement was entered into between nine founding member entities, creating the North Central Texas Regional Certification Agency (NCTRCA) for the purpose of jointly providing certification and other related services for the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise, Minority and/or Woman-Owned Business Enterprise (D/M/WBE) of the participants.


The NCTRCA was formally incorporated in October 1992, to provide the function of a more efficient regional certification. The Agency obtained 501(c)(3) non-profit status from the Internal Revenue Service in 1993.


Since opening the doors to the local business community in 1992 the Agency has reviewed over 22,000 applications and grown its member to a total 20 member organizations.


Due to the centralization of the certification process resulting in a more efficient and cost effective program to better serve the vendors of the community, for Governor Ann Richards, on April 23, 1992 proclaimed this date as North Central Texas Regional Certification Agency Day!
