Municipal Construction Affirmative Marketing Program Law
The Municipal Construction Affirmative Marketing Program is not an awarding authority. It monitors minority business enterprise (MBE) and women business enterprise (WBE) compliance in state of funded vertical construction projects throughout the Commonwealth’s 351 municipalities. The definition of a vertical construction project is four walls and a roof. The program also grants pre-advertisement and pre-bid waivers of MBE, WBE and veteran business enterprise (VBE) goals on Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) projects. Additionally, the SDO helps General Contractors conduct MBE and WBE outreach on public construction projects, maintain ongoing partnerships with three schools of construction management, and is a readily available resource to help any Commonwealth agency identify MBE, WBE and VBE contractors.
Municipal Construction Affirmative Marketing Program Law Key Points
OSD's Supplier Diversity Office (SDO) wrote the guidelines with the explicit purpose of assisting municipalities in the development of their project bid documents for state-assisted building projects that fall under the definition of the Affirmative Marketing Program, Chapter 193 of the Acts of 2004. The guidelines are broken down into model language that is separated into four attachments, which may be incorporated into a municipality's project bid documents.
