Description:

The City of Boston has commissioned BBC Research & Consulting, Nunnally & Associates, Kelley Chunn & Associates, and Bevco & Associates, to conduct a Disparity Study to assess whether any barriers exist for small business, minority-owned businesses, and woman-owned businesses to compete for City contracts.

At this Business Outreach Meeting, hosted in partnership with Black Market Dudley, we encourage small 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 MWBE Program, and bid/proposal procurement policies and procedures; and
  • The ease or difficulty of identifying City contract or subcontracting opportunities.

All meetings are family friendly, and interpretation is available upon request. Please register for this event here.
