Dayton to study if contracting gaps exist with women, minorities

The city of Dayton wants to know if there are gaps between the availability of small, minority-owned and women-owned businesses and how often the businesses are used for city contracts.

The study by MGT Consulting Group is projected to be completed in February.

Area business owners are invited to attend one of two upcoming meetings, which will take comments regarding:

• Ease in finding City contracting or subcontracting opportunities.

• Recommendations for improvement of existing bid and proposal policies.

• Roadblocks encountered when trying to do business with the city of Dayton.

The meetings are scheduled for 6 to 8 p.m. Sept. 4 and 10 a.m. to noon Sept. 6.

Both will be held at the Dayton Metro Library Northwest Branch at 2410 Philadelphia Drive.
