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 click here. 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.
