Mayor Walsh and the City of Boston want to hear from you and we want to do business with you.

About this Event

Description:

The City of Boston has commissioned BBC Research & Consulting and their team of local subcontractors: Nunnally& Associates, Kelley Chunn & Associates, and Bevco & Associates to conduct a disparity study to assess whether any barriers exist for minority- and woman-owned businesses that make it more difficult for them to participate in City contracting.

At this Business Outreach Meeting, hosted in partnership with Black Market, we encourage businesses to share their testimony about about:

  • Successes or barriers encountered when doing business or trying to do business with the City or its primes;
  • Recommendations for improvements to the existing M/WBE Program, and bid/proposal procurement policies and procedures; and
  • The ease or difficulty of identifying City contract or subcontracting opportunities.

What is a Disparity Study?

• Examines participation of of minority- and woman-owned businesses in City contracting

• Measures the availability of minority- and woman-owned businesses for City contracts and procurement

• Assesses marketplace conditions for minority- and woman-owned businesses
