Business Facilitation Forum

Date: 10/9/13 - 10/9/13

SANDAG, North County Transit District, and Imperial County Transportation Commission are conducting disparity studies in San Diego and Imperial Counties to inform their implementations of the federal DBE program. The disparity studies will include information about experiences of business owners and whether there is evidence of discrimination based on race/ethnicity or gender in the local transportation contracting industry.

Consortium members and BBC Research & Consulting will conduct two business facilitation forums throughout the local area beginning in October 2013. During each meeting, the study team will give a presentation describing the disparity study, including its purpose, methodology, and the study schedule.

Following the presentation, attendees will have the opportunity to submit verbal testimony about their experiences doing work in the local transportation-related contracting industry and to ask questions about the disparity study.

The first meeting will be held on:
