What is the city proposing?
A strong agenda of equity has always been the foundation of Mayor Jackson’s agenda and this opportunity will enable the Office of Equal Opportunity to support building the bandwidth of the contracting community through the City’s CGI Vendor Self Service System (VSS) (oversight by the Division of Purchases and Supplies) and the Small Contractor’s Rotation Program (SCRP). Both will assist in providing contractors with growth opportunities and becoming more competitive in the marketplace as capacity and bandwidth are expanded.
