The Targeted Business Program sets an 11% and 9% goal for construction contracts for the Project to be awarded to women - and minority-owned business enterprises, respectively. The Targeted Businesses that will receive credit on the Multi-Purpose Stadium Project will ONLY be certified organizations from one of the following MINNESOTA - based firms:
Disadvantaged Business Enterprise - Directory
Targeted Group Business - Directory
(Economically Disadvantaged businesses do not apply)
CERT Program - Directory
Veterans Owned Small Business - Directory
Work Force Program
The Authority recognizes the legislature's requirement that the Authority establish construction workforce goals for utilization of women and minorities during construction as per the Minnesota Department of Human Rights reflects 32% for minority and 6% women participation.
The Veterans Inclusion Program
The Veterans Inclusion Program will detail efforts to include veteran-owned small businesses in construction contracts to be awarded by the Construction Manager. Unfortunately, there are no goals associated with veteran owned small businesses, or veteran workforce. However, the Authority and the Team recognize it is our duty to ensure that the veteran population in Minnesota receives an opportunity to perform equally on this project.
