Orange County Disparity Study Holds Virtual Public Hearings

Orange County commissioned Griffin & Strong P.C. to conduct a Disparity Study to determine whether minority and women owned businesses have an equal opportunity to participate in County’s contracting. The Study will include an exploration of the Minority and Women Business Enterprise (“MWBE”) program with Orange County.

A Disparity Study is an objective analysis whose findings of discrimination, if any, are a prerequisite to revisions and modifications of current policies. Griffin & Strong, a law and public policy consulting firm based in Atlanta, Georgia, is a nationally recognized expert in disparity research. Public participation in the Study is critical to the accuracy of the Study findings and recommendations which will result in policy recommendations to Orange County.

In the best interest of preserving the safety and well-being of attendees, Griffin & Strong P.C, will host two virtual public hearings. These online sessions will provide the local business community with the opportunity to share their experiences, both positive and negative, doing business with and attempting to do business with Orange County. They are strongly encouraging local participation and look forward to all feedback on how Orange County can bridge the gap and increase diverse representation in public contracting.
