MEMPHIS, Tenn. (PRWEB) February 19, 2023
As a part of ongoing efforts to ensure equity and access, the City of Memphis has engaged Griffin & Strong, P.C. (“GSPC”) to conduct a Disparity Study to determine whether there is a significant, statistical disparity between the availability of qualified, willing and able minority and women owned firms and the utilization of such businesses by the City. The Disparity Study will gather information necessary to determine whether all qualified firms have the maximum practicable opportunity to compete for and participate in the City’s procurement of prime contracts and associated subcontracts and, if indicated by the evidence, will support the use of strategies to ensure such opportunities.
In the interest of preserving public health amidst COVID-19 concerns, Griffin & Strong, P.C., a law and public policy consulting firm, will conduct (2) two virtual public hearings on the City’s behalf. Community members are invited to share their experiences, both positive and negative, doing business with, or pursuing business with the City of Memphis.
We encourage your participation and look forward to your feedback on how the City can improve diverse representation in public contracting. As a part of the public record, all comments will be recorded and may be used as anecdotal evidence for the Disparity Study.
