The purpose of the Sub-contracting Outreach Program (SOP) is to provide full and equitable sub-contracting opportunities for all segments of the business community, promote contract opportunities for smaller firms and enhance competition for City contracts.
Supplier diversity is critical to maintaining a competitive advantage in the marketplace, community, as well as our economy. The SOP applies to City-funded construction contracts of $200,000 and above.
In 2015, the City awarded $41,211,131 through its Subcontracting Outreach Program, with $17,123,074 going to subcontractors.
