Strengthening Equity in City Contracting

News Release issued 4/08/14:

Mayor Murray signs executive order strengthening equity in city contracting
Mayor directs departments to create a more welcoming business environment for all

SEATTLE (April 8, 2014) – Mayor Ed Murray today signed an executive order strengthening the city’s ongoing commitment to social equity in city contracting opportunities. The order requires departments promptly pay invoices, support businesses by providing technical assistance, and increase accountability and coordination to ensure fair and equitable treatment among all businesses competing for public works, purchasing and consulting contracts.

“A healthy and diverse business sector is essential to Seattle’s economic vitality and this executive order makes clear my commitment to creating a more welcoming environment for businesses small and large seeking work with the city,” said Murray.

“Success among women and minority-owned businesses translates to more jobs and long-term prosperity for all,” said Councilmember Bruce Harrell, chair of the Seattle City Council’s Public Safety, Civil Rights and Technology Committee. “More than half of all new jobs are created by small business and minority-owned businesses. I applaud the Mayor’s decision to recommit our efforts on the City’s inclusionary plan and more effectively engaging with minority-owned businesses. During budget deliberations this year, departments should be prepared to report their progress on women and minority business contracting.”
