Women Reinstated in Construction Contract Goal  

Citywide Construction Goal Increases to 34%

Excitement is in the air. Women are back and the citywide construction goal has been increased! You don't know what all the hype is about? Well, on May 8, 2013, Mayor Annise Parker and the Houston City Council, unanimously approved amendments to Chapter 15 Code of Ordinances, which governs the City's Minority and Women Business Enterprise (MWBE) program and a new citywide participation goal for construction contracts.

 

As a result of City Council's action, beginning July 1, 2013, several enhancements will be made to the 30 year old goal-oriented MWBE program. Most significantly, the citywide participation goal on construction contracts will increase from 22% to 34%; Women Business Enterprises (WBEs) will be reinstated in construction contract specific goals; and the Persons with Disabilities Business Enterprise program will be expanded so that it's more inclusive of disabled veterans by adopting the federal government's definition of "disability". Although not required to have a race neutral component to the MWBE program, the City has elected to continue a Small Business Enterprise program, resulting in an MWSBE program.
