State of Indiana notice of Public forum – Disparity Study

More by this author

(2/1/10) The Indiana Department of Administration (IDOA), Indiana Department of Transportation and public colleges from across the state are conducting a disparity study related to their procurement and contracting procedures.

The study will include accounts from business owners and other industry representatives about working in Indiana and whether or not they have experienced discrimination based on race, ethnicity or gender in the Indiana marketplace. The agencies and public colleges participating in the study will review that information as they consider future implementation of the State’s MBE/WBE/DBE programs. In connection with the study, IDOA is hosting a public forum where vendors, contractors and other industry representatives can share personal experiences and other information relevant to

procurement and contracting in the state. The public forum will be held on

Wednesday, February 24, 2010, between 3:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., at the following location:

Indiana Government Center South

Conference Center – Auditorium

402 W. Washington Street

Indianapolis, IN 46204

Attendees of the public forum will have the opportunity to share their experiences about a number

of topics relevant to working in Indiana, including: obtaining work with state and local government

agencies, public colleges and private sector establishments; starting or expanding a business;

obtaining financing, insurance and bonding; and whether or not discrimination affects businesses

in the state.

Individuals who are interested in participating in the public forum do not have to attend for the

entire duration — they are welcome to share their comments and leave at their convenience.

Individuals who would like to submit additional information or cannot attend the public forum are

encouraged to submit written comments to IDOA via traditional mail, fax or email

(the deadline to submit written comments is February 17, 2010):
