Announcing 2016 MBE/WBE Disparity Study  - DCAMM is conducting a Disparity Study to evaluate the participation of Minority and Women Owned Business Enterprises in Commonwealth construction and design services contracting and procurement activities.

DCAMM's Access and Opportunity Group is made up of following areas: 

Contractor Certification

Taisha Crayton, Deputy Director

DCAMM Certification allows companies to bid on vertical building construction projects put out to bid by Massachusetts public awarding authorities pursuant to M.G.L. Chapters 149, 149A and 25A.  These projects include the construction, reconstruction, demolition, maintenance or repair of buildings with an estimated total project cost in excess of $100,000

Contract Compliance 

Charles Kelsey, Deputy Director

DCAMM Contract Compliance monitors performance against program goals under its Affirmative Marketing Program for Design and Construction. DCAMM’s Supplier Diversity program was established under M.G.L. Chapter 7C, §6, and various Executive Orders and Administrative Bulletins. Public construction and design projects undertaken by DCAMM and other public awarding authorities, including municipal projects receiving state funding, provide significant opportunities for M/WBE firms to participate on these projects.

Workforce Compliance

Samilys Rodriguez, Workforce Reporting and Development Manager

DCAMM Workforce Compliance monitors performance against program goals for diverse workforce participation of women and minorities on public construction and design contracts.   M.G.L. Chapter 7C, §6, and various Executive Orders and Administrative Bulletins established the reporting requirements and trade workforce goals: 15.3% Minorities and 6.9% Female.  The participation goals are neither floors nor ceilings, but shall be used to measure progress in meeting the Commonwealth's equal opportunity, non-discrimination and affirmative action program on state and state-assisted construction contracts.
