MBE/WBE Subs and Suppliers Meet & Greet for the Construction Industry

Save the Date – – –

On Tuesday, March 6th, the departments of Contract Compliance and Public Works are hosting a meet and greet for our area MBE/WBE Subs and Suppliers to meet with representatives from companies we have identified as our most frequent Prime Contractors on UG Public Works projects. The goal of this event is to let our Primes meet with MBE/WBE Subs and Suppliers they may not be familiar with in order to begin a dialogue and build a relationship.

The event will be held at the Unified Government City Hall from 3-6pm. We hope to have representatives from Crossland, JE Dunn, and Turner on hand to give a brief presentation and then there will be an opportunity for each Sub and Supplier to meet with up to 12 Prime Contractors.

Attached to this email is a pre-qualification form. If you know of any MBE/WBE Subs and Suppliers interested in attending the event please have them complete the form and return it to our office no later than 3pm on Friday, February 10th. We will have a finalized list of invitees no later than Friday, February 17th. We are limiting this first event to around 20 Subs and Suppliers. Companies will be picked based on the answers given on the pre-qualification form. There is no charge to apply, however companies chosen for the event will need to pay a registration fee of $10/ company at or before the event.

I have allowed all users access to the highlighted areas of the Pre-Qualification form if you wish to complete it electronically. For those of you less technically inclined, you may also print the form off and fill it out by hand. Whichever way you choose to provide the information, we need all completed pre-qualifications returned to our office no later than 3pm on Friday, February 10th. The pre-qualification forms will be reviewed by UG staff and members of our Contract Fairness Board. None of the information provided on the forms will be used for any purpose aside from determining qualification for this event. We are only looking to ensure all companies meet the appropriate capacity and qualification standards to perform on UG projects.
