Local, small, minority, and women-owned businesses are invited to participate in the City of Dallas Office of Business Diversity’s Availability and Disparity Study.
Regional/area business owners will be asked to provide information about their experiences doing business or attempting to do business with the City or on City projects at the upcoming public engagement meeting to be held on February 26, 2019 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Bill J Priest Economic Institute located at 1402 Corinth St., Dallas TX 75215.
The City has contracted MGT Consulting Group (MGT), a nationally recognized firm, to evaluate the utilization of Minority and Women Business Enterprise (M/WBE) firms in the City’s procurement/contracting activities in architecture, engineering, construction, other services, professional services and goods.
Input from all businesses will be reviewed and some will be used in the study which subsequently will provide input to the study’s findings and recommendations.
MGT Consulting Group has partnered with Consumer Market Insights, Innovative Strategies, and Rincon & Associates to assist with collecting and analyzing anecdotal information during the study.
