In addition to presentation of project teams and overview of the scopes of work and conditions the Pre-Submittal Conference is an opportunity for interested Prime bidders and subcontractors (all tiers and suppliers) to meet each other, and to meet with the Project Teams and Outreach Managers to learn about the bid strategy and supplier diversity expectations for these projects.
The Supplier Diversity portion of the agenda will provide an opportunity for interested bidders to understand how the state is certifying and measuring supplier diversity inclusion.
Representatives from DES’s Supplier Diversity Program, the Office of Minority and Women Business Enterprises, and the Department of Veterans Affairs may also be in attendance to discuss the state’s supplier diversity goals.
