March 2018 M/WBE Disparity Study Update
Review this revision to the study,
which was previously adopted by City Council in August 2018.
This revision will be considered for approval by City Council
at its 5:30 pm February 19 meeting.
It's the City's policy to ensure all businesses -- including those owned by minorities and women -- are afforded the maximum practicable opportunity to participate in the City’s purchasing and contracting processes.
The benefit to the City is a robust and inclusive marketplace environment. As a result, the City is likely to benefit from a competitive marketplace through lower prices for the goods and services it purchases, higher revenues through increased employment opportunities for its residents, increased business-to-business sales, and a more vibrant local economy.
In 2014, City Council adopted the Minority/Women Program Plan. The purpose of the plan is to promote economic inclusion of all segments of the business population, regardless of race, gender, religion or national origin, so as to maximize the economic vitality and development of the Greensboro area.Learn more
