Description

The department aims to promote diversity in our operations, as well as our surrounding communities, and the statutory Chapter 16 Minority Business Enterprise requirement furthers this goal. Our target is for five percent of agency spending in each fiscal year to be paid to certified minority businesses. We measure the total percentage of MBE spending at the agency level as ​well as MBE spending per division.

How is this measure trending?​​ ​​ Unfavorable​red down
