DPS Superintendent Tom Boasberg, the Board of Education and the Office of Business Diversity invite you to the follow up to the Business Diversity Public Forum that took place on December 7, 2016 regarding the assessment on DPS’ current procurement practices and business diversity program conducted by MGT of America. For over twenty years, the DPS Business Outreach program has been in place to help guide DPS efforts to involve diverse businesses in our construction projects. The program helps promote diversity in construction and related contracting for bond funded capital improvement projects. In the past three years, the DPS Board of Education and administration have led efforts to provide greater opportunities to diverse construction vendors. In order to continue to effectively meet the needs of our vendors, DPS partnered with MGT of America to conduct an assessment of DPS’ current procurement pra ctices and business diversity program. As part of  this assessment, MGT of America will present their findings and provide a readout of the assessment on April 5, 2017 at 5:30PM. Please join us for this presentation.
