  • The program will begin with an update on the design and construction schedule followed by information on how companies can qualify for contracting opportunities from a variety of presenters familiar with opportunities for small, minority-owned and women-owned businesses.
  • Attendees will receive information about specific construction bidding opportunities and requirements, as well as details about capacity-building services for sitework, concrete, electrical, mechanical, and other general construction work.
