At the start of each project, we deploy an extensive outreach program to engage and inform the small business community about potential business opportunities. Through job fairs, networking events, print and online advertising, and with the help of various local and national resources, we solicit participation from a very broad list of qualified subcontractors and suppliers.
Networking opportunity meetings are meant to generate awareness about current projects, including project-specific small business subcontracting goals. In addition, we focus on:
- How to do business with Clark
- Future subcontracting opportunities
- Project schedule
- Trades to be purchased
- Bidding criteria
- Contract requirements
