Disparity Study

The Consolidated Government of Augusta-Richmond County (ARC) commissioned NERA Consulting, Inc. to conduct this study to evaluate whether minority- and women-owned firms in its contracting marketplace have full and fair opportunities to compete for its prime contracts and associated subcontracts. To ensure compliance with constitutional mandates and M/WBE best practices, ARC commissioned NERA to examine the past and current status of M/WBEs in ARC’s geographic and product markets for contracting and procurement. The results of NERA’s Study (hereinafter the “2009 Study”), provide the evidentiary record necessary to implement renewed M/WBE policies that comply with the requirements of the courts and to assess the extent to which previous efforts have assisted M/WBEs to participate on a fair basis in ARC’s contracting and procurement activity.
