What is the city proposing?
Using the City Accelerator process, Pittsburgh would like to focus primarily on implementing two critical pre-bid tools: 1) Vendor Outreach Marketing and 2) Joint Venture, Teaming, and Mentor-Protégé Relationships. Their second goal is to build a library of sub-prime contractor lists of minority-owned businesses that can be readily available as large projects come down the pike, increasing participation from minority businesses.
