It will also ensure that initiatives to increase participation reflect the realities and needs of these businesses.

Important: This is not a bid solicitation process and no contract will result from this request. This Request for Information (RFI) is not a condition or prerequisite for your participation in any potential subsequent solicitation. Please note that respondents will not be reimbursed for any cost incurred by completing this RFI.
