Unauthorized Changes Endanger DC Small Business Growth

The Construction Alliance, a coalition of four organizations; Anacostia Economic Development Corporation (AEDC), DC Metro Hispanic Contractors Association (DCMHCA), the Building Trades Union (CHOICE) and the National Association of Minority Contractors-DC Metro Chapter (NAMCDC), is shocked to learn that without public discussion, hearings or apparent authority to do so, staffers at the Dept. of General Services (DGS) diluted the value of preference points allocated to District Certified Business Enterprises (CBE's) that qualify under DC law 16-33 code 2-218.01, the Small Local & Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Development & Assistance Act of 2005. The staff decisions at DGS go against everything we have fought for and rely on as a small business community; transparency, accountability and the rule of law. We applaud the efforts of the administration of Mayor Muriel Bowser to undo these decisions that impact the hard fought ground that local, small and disadvantaged businesses have gained throughout the years.
