On this page, you are invited to view a short welcoming video to the MWOB project. Next, the team introduces you to the Minority and Women Owned Business Policy which was retrieved from the U of A’s Procurement Office.
"It is the policy of the State of Arkansas to support equal opportunity as well as economic development in every sector. In accordance with the Minority and Women-Owned Business Economic Development Act, UA supports all possible participation of companies owned and controlled by minority persons and women in state-funded and state-directed public programs and construction projects.
Pursuant to Ark. Code Ann. § 19-11-229, 19-11-230 and 22-9-203 the State of Arkansas encourages all small, minority, and women owned business enterprises to submit competitive sealed bids and proposals for university projects, including capital improvement projects. Encouragement is also made to all general contractors that in the event they subcontract portions of their work, consideration is given to the identified groups."
