Continue utilization data collection
The BBC study team will continue to work with RTCSNV to collect data on construction, professional services, goods, and other services contracts that participating entities awarded during the study period.
Begin utilization data analysis
The study team will begin analyzing utilization data in late 2015. BBC’s analysis will examine the percentage of total construction, professional services, goods, and other services contract dollars that minority- and women-owned businesses received on prime contracts and subcontracts during the study period.
BBC will begin conducting availability surveys in late 2015. For the RTC, the study team will attempt to contact all businesses in the “relevant geographic market area” that perform work that is relevant to the entity’s construction, professional services, goods, and other services contracts. The study team will collect information that is relevant to determining each business’ availability for the entity’s work, such as primary line of work; geographic scope of services; and qualifications and interest in working for the RTC. The surveys will also collect information about business characteristics such as revenue, size, and race/ethnicity, and gender of ownership.
