Workshop Scheduled on Good Faith Efforts for Bidders

The city’s Office of Business Inclusion & Advancement is holding a free virtual workshop on Thursday, Nov. 10 at 10 a.m. to discuss standards for judging whether Minority and Women Business Enterprise (M/WBE) participation efforts are sufficient.

The workshop is designed for consultants, engineers and designers who bid for contracts that have subcontracting goals for participation by minority- and women-owned businesses. The city is more strictly interpreting good faith efforts for professional, general and other service-related contracts with M/WBE participation.

The workshop will explain the standards for judging the efforts to meet participation goals for minority- and women-owned subcontractors. The workshop also will discuss policies and procedures so that businesses are in the best position to win contracts and gain M/WBE participation. Attendees will receive a certificate, good for two years, which can be used on future bids to fulfill one of the requirements to document a responsive bid.

Attendees must register for the event by Wednesday, Nov. 9 by visiting: CityofWS.org/MWBE, and will be sent access information to the email address they use for registration.

For more information contact Jakira Westbrook at 336-734-1238 or jakirab@cityofws.org.
