What is Los Angeles proposing?

The City of Los Angeles is looking to institutionalize procurement practices that stimulate business growth and promote inclusive contracting opportunities, while expanding the pool of businesses that do business with the city. The City Accelerator cohort could enable LA to achieve a triple bottom line of increased local employment, diverse approaches to solving city problems, and savings realized from increased competition for contracts. Lessons learned from the cohort could lead to a robust supplier diversity program, inclusive procurement practices to grow the local economy, and engagements with outside public and private sector institutions.
