Grants and public procurement. Requires that for any grant or contract issued or entered into by the Governor, any state agency, or any locality, such entity shall inquire whether the grant recipient, bidder, offeror, or contractor is a small, women-owned, or minority-owned business and whether it is certified by the Department of Small Business and Supplier Diversity (SBSD) for procurement enhancement. If such business is eligible but not certified, the bill directs the SBSD to provide it with information on the certification process and encourage it to apply for certification. Read the Bill »
