Business Owner Engagement

Community Engagement Meetings

MGT Consulting Group will host two public engagement meetings to present the Study’s objectives and gather feedback from business owners on their experiences doing business, or attempting to do business, with the Unified Government or their prime vendors. These meetings are open to the public and all are invited. Input gathered during the public engagement meetings and any written comments will be analyzed as the basis for recommendations for potential modifications to the M/WBE Program.

A Virtual Community Engagement Meeting is scheduled on April 14, 2022 from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM. Register online here.

Interviews and Surveys 

Businesses in all procurement categories and ethnic classifications will be randomly selected and invited to participate in in-depth interviews and business surveys. The interviews are opportunities for businesses to have one-on-one discussions with the MGT team regarding their experiences doing business, or attempting to do business, with the Unified Government or primes contracted by the Unified Government. The business surveys gather information on business demographics, capacity, and experiences doing business with the Unified Government.
