Office of Minority and Women Inclusion (OMWI) Performance: Opportunities for Agencies & Minority and Women firms
Section 342 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act creates an Office of Minority and Women Inclusion (OMWI) at twenty nine (29) federal agencies. These Offices are responsible for monitoring diversity efforts at the agencies, regulated entities and agency contractors.
Recently, several OMWI Offices issued Annual Reports to Congress, detailing their women and minority business contracting. We reviewed minority contracting data from OMWI Office Annual Reports and other proprietary sources. We compare these newly released numbers to our OMWI Impact Forecast and review each industry group and provide a forecast. We calculate minority and women business contracting opportunities at the 29 Federal Offices required to report under the OMWI law, and estimate the increase or decrease from prior year levels. We discuss these and other developments in our webinar.
