The purpose of this RFP is to conduct a Phase 2 study to determine if there is a disparity between the number of MWBEs that are ready, willing, and able to perform services, goods and supplies, and maintenance and maintenance-related contracts and the numbers of these same companies who are actually participating in these types of contracts with the School Board.

The scope is not all inclusive and shall only be considered as a guideline for expected work required in completing the study. The selected Proposer shall perform all tasks necessary to provide the agreed upon deliverables in accordance with applicable legal and industry standards, regardless of whether the tasks are specifically listed in this RFP.
