[ARCHIVED] Disparity Study Public Meeting

The City of Hampton and Schools is conducting an Update Disparity Study and invites all interested parties to a public meeting. The Disparity Study will review the utilization of Minority- and Women-owned Business Enterprises (M/WBE) for the City of Hampton and Schools (City). The study will examine 1) the procurement of construction, architecture and engineering, professional services, goods and supplies, and services for the City; 2) the subcontracting practices of prime contractors who do business with the City, and 3) the anecdotal evidence collected from a broad cross section of M/WBE and non-M/WBE firms.

The purpose of the public meeting is to hear an overview of the tasks included in the disparity study, learn how area businesses may be asked to participate, and obtain testimonies and accounts of experiences working with or seeking work from the City.
