City of Seattle Disparity Study, RFP#FAS 2020-004


Request for Proposals for

City of Seattle Disparity Study

It is the City of Seattle’s goal to provide the maximum practicable opportunity for increased participation by minority- and women-owned and controlled businesses, as long as such businesses are underrepresented, and to ensure that City contracting practices do not support discrimination in employment and services when the City procures public works, goods, and services from the private sector.

The City, through the Finance and Administrative
Services department, seeks proposals from qualified firms to conduct a fourth
generation disparity analysis of the City’s contractual awards for goods,
services (professional and general), and public works construction within the
City’s relevant marketplace. The City seeks proposals from firms/organizations
with experience conducting comparable studies of discrimination and disparities
in contracting and procurement.
