Good Faith Efforts and Project Monitoring
Participation by certified female owned, certified handicapped owned, or certified minority owned business entities or utilization by contractors of certified female, certified handicapped, or certified minority owned business as subcontractors, if the contract requires or warrants the use of subcontractors, is strongly encouraged and will be a consideration in determining the award of a contract. Failure to meet such goals will not result in disqualification from participation in the particular procurement process.
Under Metro Code of Ordinances §37.67, Louisville Metro Government has adopted the following minimum utilization goals for its annual procurement expenditures with certified minority owned, female owned and handicapped owned business enterprises ("MFHBEs"):
• 15% for certified minority owned businesses
• 5% for certified female owned businesses; and
