A successful inclusion process for minority and women-owned businesses starts well before the bidding documents are available for contractors. It is the responsibility of the entire construction team to promote, educate, and collaborate amongst all interested contractors looking to develop a relationship with our clients. Our goal is to provide opportunities for new, small, and/or diverse businesses to partner with large prime bidders in pursuit of projects that might normally be outside of their capacity.
We have successfully implemented an outreach program that pairs large prime contractors with 2nd and 3rd tier subcontractors and suppliers. Through various outreach and engagement sessions, diverse contractors can spotlight their skillsets and make connections with prime contractors who might be looking to supplement their workforces.
