City studies fairness of its contracting
The city of Chattanooga has contracted with the law firm of Griffin & Strong to study the fairness of Chattanooga’s purchasing and contract rules and whether to modify its activities to promote more diversity in city contracting.
An informational meeting to gather input about the city’s contracting policies and practices is scheduled from 6-7:30 p.m. Monday at the Chattanooga Public Library in downtown Chattanooga. During the meeting, Griffin & Strong will provide information about ways businesses can be fully engaged in the study process to help the city ensure that all sectors of the business community are represented in public spending, including prime contractors, small businesses, minority- and women-owned businesses.
The event is free but registration is suggested. To register visit: https://www.eventbrite. com/e/city-of-chattanooga-dis parity-study-informational-meet ing-tickets-53024772522
