Business Diversity Program
The Procurement Department is responsible for managing the Authority’s Business Diversity Program. MPEA is committed to providing equal access to potential business opportunities to minority and women-owned businesses. It is our goal to ensure the utilization of minority and women-owned businesses to the maximum extent possible. The Business Diversity Program is an integral part of our procurement process. Our facilities are located within a diverse community and we seek to ensure that our vendor pool and workforce reflect the environment in which we operate.
The Procurement Department through its Business Diversity Program participates in a number of outreach events to promote our upcoming procurement opportunities within the minority and women-owned business community. To view a list of events that we are scheduled to participate in, please review below . In addition, there are various organizations that provide assistance to businesses to help them grow. This includes everything from developing a business plan to securing a small business loan. For your convenience, we have provided links to their websites on our Useful Links list below.
