Chattanooga Times Free Press - - BUSINESS -

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.
