Journal:Rules on minority-, woman-owned businesses frustrate Ogdensburg authority
Twenty percent of business to MWBEs (minority- or woman-owned businesses enterprises) is not my idea of leveling the playing field. The amount is disproportional to the number of these businesses and gives them an unfair advantage. Many times the prices are higher and your still forced to purchase these items.
Many companies bid state contracts getting the best bang for your buck, then you introduce MWBEs and saving money is not the objective.
