Friday, December 7, 2018

The City of Chattanooga and Griffin & Strong, P.C. (GSPC) are hosting an informational meeting on Monday, Dec. 10, for locally-owned businesses. The event will be at the Chattanooga Public Library - Downtown Branch, from 6-7 p.m.


The City of Chattanooga recently entered in a contract with Griffin & Strong, P.C.

(GSPC) to conduct a comprehensive disparity study relating specifically to contracting. The study will determine whether there is a need to create programs and/or modify existing procurement activities to ensure fairness and promote diversity in City contracting.


Business owners can expect to learn how they can participate in the study process and help the City ensure that all sectors of the business community are represented in public spending; including prime contractors, small businesses, minority- and women-owned businesses ("M/WBE").


Griffin & Strong will facilitate and provide information about ways businesses can be fully engaged in the study process. The City of Chattanooga encourages the participation of the business community in helping inform the study process, which could impact future contracting opportunities with small and diverse businesses.


The event is free but registration is suggested. To register visit: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/city-of-chattanooga-disparity-study-informational-meeting-tickets-53024772522
