What is the city proposing?
With the recommendations from the first City of South Bend MWBE Disparity Study for Purchasing and Contracting, South Bend’s project will focus on leveraging over $1.8 billion combined contracting and procurement spending of the top 10 employers in South Bend. This will help to create, stabilize, and scale up MBE/MWBE's that offer the goods, services, professional services and contracting used locally every day to address the longstanding racial wealth divide through entrepreneurship.
