DSB EQUITY STATEMENT

Diversity emphasis in Designer Selection:
The Commonwealth is committed to helping address the disparity in the participation of minorities and women in design. We would like to point out a couple of changes in our current DCAMM advertisements to promote this effort.

In the Affirmative Marketing Section of the ads – we describe the goals for MBE and WBE participation, but we are also looking for what we call a ‘Diversity Focus Statement’ – which is your opportunity to describe your approach to diversity in your firms and in the formulation of your applicant teams. We are encouraging creativity in forming teams, and in dividing up the anticipated work of the projects.

SECTION 5 in the application form is the space to provide ‘any additional information or description of resources supporting the qualifications of your firm and that of your subconsultants for the proposed project’ – this is the identified space to include your Diversity Focus Statement in addition to other materials responding to the evaluation factors and experience requested in the ad.

MBW/WBE PARTICIPATION

Applicants are strongly encouraged to use multiple disciplines and firms to meet their MBE/WBE goals. Firms can also apply as a Prime Firm to meet the goals. Prime consultants can also join together with another firm to be SDO certified as a "joint venture" within their disciplines in order to meet the MBE/WBE goals.
