2009 Disparity Study and Appendices

D. Wilson Consulting Group conducted a study to determine whether a disparity exists for minority and women owned disadvantaged business enterprises (M/W/DBEs) working on Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) federally funded construction and design projects. A disparity exists when there are more available M/W/DBEs ready, willing and able to conduct work on CDOT projects than are utilized. The study included six years of procurement activity from January 2002 through December 2007.
