Chesterfield County has been working to increase opportunities among Minority Business Enterprises, Woman-Owned Businesses, and Chesterfield Businesses in its procurement and contracting activities.

Through its diversity initiative, the purchasing department has taken a proactive effort to increase opportunities for participation by a more diverse group of contractors and vendors.

As part of this initiative, staff will insert information targeting these businesses in print publications, bid applications and on the purchasing department’s website.

The county also plans to strongly encourage each contractor and/or supplier with which the County contracts to actively solicit Minority Business Enterprises, Woman-Owned Businesses, and Chesterfield Businesses as subcontractors/suppliers for his or her projects.
