As a result of a workshop sponsored by AGC on Seattle’s new WMBE requirements the City has developed a new version of the plan.
The new plan removes the dual-elements used to determine marketplace availability. Instead the City will utilize past performance alone. The new form reflects this change.
Further the City has adjusted the point system to more clearly favor the two main features of the plan aspirational goals and WMBE commitments. Other changes include posting the results of the WMBE Inclusion Plan scores on Ebid for each applicable project right alongside the Bid results and ensuring that the Past Performance Category applicable to the project (for example Roadways Facilities etc) is clearly stated within the Bid Ad and the Bid Specifications.
The new version can be found on the City’s website.
