WSSC to examine minority contracting
The Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission has hired a California firm to evaluate how the water and sewer utility includes businesses owned by women and minorities when it awards contracts, the WSSC announced Wednesday.
The firm, Oakland-based Mason Tillman Associates Ltd., will analyze the utility's contracting records for fiscal years 2004 to 2009 to determine whether there were women- and minority-owned firms available to bid for jobs and how successful those companies were in clinching contracts.
The WSSC, which provides water and sewer services in Montgomery and Prince George's counties, is conducting the so-called "disparity study" as part of reconsidering its Minority Business Enterprise program. The study's findings are expected in November.
