Share this article

SALEM, Ore. — The Oregon Department of Administrative Services (DAS) has commissioned BBC Research & Consulting (BBC) to conduct a disparity study to assess whether any barriers exist for small businesses, veteran-owned businesses, person of color (POC)-owned businesses, or woman-owned businesses that make it more difficult for them to compete for or perform state work.

The disparity study will:
• Measure the participation of those businesses in State work
• Estimate the availability of those businesses for State work
• Assess whether any disparities exist between utilization and participation
• Assess marketplace conditions for those businesses

There will be many opportunities for you to participate directly in the study. Look out for information on how you can participate in the following ways:
• Attend a community stakeholder session (December 2022)
• Participate in a business survey (December 2022 – April 2023)
• Participate in an in-depth interview (December 2022 – March 2023)
• Participate in a focus group (April 2023)
• Submit written comments or questions (throughout)
• Attend a final presentation (September 2023)
