Assistant Attorney General, Deborah Anderson, the head of the Attorney Generals Construction Bid Unit, will discuss the Workforce Participation Goals Statute. This law, which applies to any state funded project, has been on the books for several years and requires participation goals for women and minorities. As opposed to the M/WBE goals related to the business entities ownership structure, this law specifically relates to the designer’s and the contractor’s actual workforce,. The law requires that the goals as well as the awarding authority’s procedures for monitoring compliance with the goals, appear in the bid documents and the contract.
As chairs of the GAC and K-12 Educational Design Committee, we would like to invite all interested members to join us to learn more about these state mandated workforce diversity requirements.
