It is crucial that business owners, industry organizations and community groups participate in the study’s process and contribute to the study’s findings.
Public participation is an important element of the Disparity Study. We hosted public information meetings in late March, 2018. You may download the presentation by clicking here.
Stakeholder Group Interviews
CHA will conduct group interviews of stakeholders, such as minority, women and veteran business groups, trade organizations, chambers of commerce, community groups and other interested organizations. These important sessions will provide an opportunity to relate your members’ experiences doing business with the Washington State Department of Transportation / FAA and its prime vendors. Your insight and experiences will help to identify potential improvements, increase collaboration and promote economic growth for all elements of our community.
Business Owner Interviews
CHA will conduct group interviews for business owners across the state. Business owners can provide critical insights into doing business with the WSDOT/FAA and its prime vendors, the effectiveness of their current contracting and equity initiatives, and make suggestions for creative approaches to level the public contracting playing field.
