DISPARITY STUDY PUBLIC MEETING NOTICE

Prince George’s County has contracted MGT of America, Inc. to conduct a Disparity Study to evaluate the utilization of Minority/Women and County Based Business Enterprise (M/W/CBBE) firms.

Regional business owners are invited to provide information about their experiences doing business or attempting to do business with Prince George’s County at the upcoming public hearing on April 29, 2015.

Input from businesses will be used to shape and improve programs for M/W/CBBE firms, potentially increasing business opportunities for them.

DISPARITY STUDY PUBLIC MEETING NOTICE

Business owners are invited to provide comments about their experiences doing business or attempting to do business with Prince George’s County (County). The primary objective is to assess, quantify, and evaluate the prevalence, magnitude, and extent of marketplace discrimination, if any, against minority, and women business enterprises (M/WBE), and County- Based business enterprises (CBBE).

Your participation is critical to address potential modifications to the County’s current M/W/CBBE programs. The Disparity Study will examine the procurement of construction, services, and products; the subcontracting practices of prime contractors/service providers who do business with the County and in the private sector.
