Disparity Study Goal Setting - Vendor Training

You are invited to participate in a PA DGS BDISBO workshop on the Bureau of Diversity, Inclusion and Small Business Opportunities’ (BDISBO) New Small Diverse and Veterans Business Goal Setting Program.

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania completed a Disparity Study in 2018 which made recommendations on programmatic changes to the commonwealth’s small, small diverse and veteran business programs. As such, a new Goal Setting process went into effect August 17th for all RFPs, RFQs and IFBs for Non-construction bids $250K and over and Construction bids $400K and over. This program requires changes to the process vendors must complete in order to be compliant with the mandated use of small diverse and veteran businesses as subcontractors on bid/proposals.

The workshop will focus on outlining the new programs and an overview of the process and the requisite forms to be completed.

Training will be offered via on-line presentations on the following dates in 2023: No RSVP Required
