DDC regularly hosts networking and outreach events

M/WBEs can learn about working with DDC, our project pipeline, discuss contracting opportunities, and meet prime contractors who have committed to subcontract to M/WBEs. In addition to attending over 45 external events a year, we host workshops and webinars on how to navigate the DDC contract process. Other events focus on DDC specific programs, such as East Side Coastal Resiliency, Borough- Based Jails, and more. We work with other agencies, including NYC Department of Small Business Services, to highlight and promote M/WBE initiatives.

We also host matchmaking events to support the prime contractors who are on our General Construction list of pre-qualified vendors (PQL) and have committed to subcontract 30% to M/WBEs. Through these events, the PQL firms can meet and become familiar with M/WBE subcontractors who are interested in working on DDC projects and can help them meet their utilization goal.

At the Contractors & Consultants Open House, DDC will share the projects in our pipeline and highlight new contract processes and procedures.

The Annual Conference on Contract Opportunities provides small M/WBEs the opportunity to meet with exhibitors in both the public and private sectors to discuss contracting opportunities.
