Case Study

Virginia Beach Procurement Opportunity Committee (POC)

InnovationAlliance for Innovation Recommended

by City of Virginia Beach, VA for the Alliance for Innovation

Virginia Beach has a 10% minority participation goal it has never achieved. Desiring a more proactive approach to minority contractor outreach, VB reorganized its program around coaching and mentoring in September 2015. The POC and its affiliated process is the physical evidence of the new approach. The POC offers a path to award public contracts to minority contractors (Small, Women and Minority) through an initial "readiness" assessment, ensured access to organizational decision makers, mandatory follow up interviews to maintain engagement, and a group of participants that provide constant updates on new City contracts while facilitating joint venturing between minority contractors
