Chapter 7C, §6, and various Executive Orders and Administrative Bulletins.  Design and Construction goals are based on DCAMM’s statewide disparity study, and project specific considerations including scope, size, and availability of certain types of firms. Our combined MBE/WBE standard goals are currently 10.4% for construction, and 17.9% for design, but are modified as appropriate based on the project. MBE and WBE firms are firms that meet required criteria for ownership and control by minorities and/or women and have been so certified by Supplier Diversity Office (SDO).
