Minority/Women Business Development Program
It is Board policy to improve opportunities for minority/women business enterprises (M/WBD) to participate competitively in proposals for materials and supplies, and professional services.
It is the policy of the Board of Education to maximize the utilization of qualified local, minority, and women owned business enterprises (“LMWBEs”) who provide professional services or who serve as prime contractors, subcontractors or suppliers as a part of the District’s facilities construction, maintenance and repair programs. The Board expects that prime contractors on district construction projects will make and document good faith efforts to maximize the utilization of qualified LMWBEs as subcontractors and suppliers. The Board also promotes capacity building within the local construction community and encourages the use of partnerships, teaming and mentorships to provide LMWBEs with relevant and necessary experiences to grow their business.
