Taking Action Against Disparities

As a result of the first-ever Commonwealth Disparity Study in 2018, significant insight was gained into the challenges faced by small businesses (SBs) and small diverse businesses (SDBs) when it comes to state government contracting and the overall economy. Based on the recommendations of the study, Governor Wolf is committed to implementing policies and programs that will get the commonwealth on a path of improvement in the quality and quantity of opportunities for SBs and SDBs. These efforts will be centered around the implementation of Goal Setting, the establishment of a Veterans Business Enterprise (VBE) program and the revitalization of the Small Business Reserve (SBR) program.
