In an effort to advance equity at CPS, the Business Diversity department works to:
- Assure that M/WBE vendors are informed of CPS contracting opportunities
- Provide M/WBE vendors with relevant information and assistance related to CPS procurement practices and procedures, and bid/proposals specifications and requirements
- Increase equity in CPS’ procurement activities by ensuring that every contract presented to the board is evaluated for MWBE participation.
- Monitor and enforce vendor compliance
