Diversity Statement

The County is committed to supplier diversity in the performance of all contracts associated with Federal and State funding projects. The County requires the Bidder/Contractor to make good faith efforts to encourage the participation of minority owned and woman owned and small business enterprises in accordance with applicable laws.

The Bidder/Contractor is required to submit documentation to reflect the affirmative action steps taken to utilize minority owned and women owned and small business enterprises in the work and the intended use of these companies in the work.

The Contractor is required to include in their bid documentation that the Bidder has carried out these affirmative steps for Minority and Women’s Business Enterprise participation as follows:

1) Included qualified minority and women’s businesses on solicitation lists.
2) Solicited minority and women’s businesses whenever they are potential sources.
3) Divided total requirements, when economically feasible, into small tasks or quantities to permit maximum participation by minority and women’s businesses.
4) Where feasible, established delivery schedules which will encourage participation by minority and women’s businesses.

The following websites are provided to assist Bidder/Contractor with Affirmative steps:

U.S. Small Business Administration
U.S. Department of Commerce’s Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA)
Florida Department of Management Services, Office of Supplier Diversity

Bidder/Contractor will be responsible for participating in these affirmative steps and providing documentation to that effect. County will be responsible to verify/certify it has obtained and reviewed documentation from the apparent lowest, responsive, responsible bidder demonstrating a good faith effort to facilitate Minority and Women’s Business Enterprise participation in this contract.
