City of Toledo Seeks MBE Contractors for 2017 Construction Projects
The City of Toledo seeks to expand opportunities for Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) contracting firms to perform work for the City and is hosting a free outreach event on Monday, May 8, at the Main Branch of the Toledo Lucas County Public Library at 325 N. Michigan St.
“The City of Toledo is committed to economic inclusion and is intentional in its efforts to partner with MBE companies,” said Mayor Paula Hicks-Hudson. “There are many opportunities for firms to be involved with the City this year, and we encourage general contractors, subcontractors and suppliers to attend this informational event.”
The event will be held in the McMaster Center and will begin at 5 p.m. with refreshments and networking. The presentation will start at 5:30 p.m. All MBE contracting firms are encouraged to attend to learn about construction services needed for a variety of upcoming projects, and how smaller firms can sub-contract with other companies to bid for City projects. Other topics to be covered are: contract requirements, bidding schedule, and the process for becoming prequalified and/or certified for bidding.
Approximately $175 million in projects will be open for bid this year with the Collins Park Water Treatment Plant, Toledo Waterways Initiative and the City’s Division of Engineering Services, Division of Facility and Fleet Operations and Department of Neighborhoods.
“Our goal is to include all segments of the community, and we encourage MBE/WBE firms to become certified,” said Calvin Brown, director of the Office of Diversity of Inclusion.
Attendees are asked to bring their Capability Statements.
Contractors seeking more information or who want to RSVP may call 419-290-2583 or email Dawn.Raabe@aecom.com
Parking for this event is also free in the main library’s underground parking garage.
