Notice is hereby given that Capital Region Water has adopted the Minority Women and Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Plan to ensure that minority, women and other disadvantaged business enterprises have an equal opportunity to receive and participate in all project related construction contracts. Following the submission of DBE documentation in compliance with EPA Regulations regarding initial solicitations, it is the intent of Capital Region Water to ensure nondiscrimination in the award and administration of contracts, to create a level playing field on which minority, women, veteran, service-disabled-veteran, and LGBT-owned business enterprises can compete fairly for Capital Region Water contracts and subcontracts, to help remove barriers to the participation of minority, women, veteran, service-disabled veteran, and LGBT-owned business enterprises and to assist the development of firms that can compete successfully in the marketplace outside of this program. CRW will establish minimum participation levels (MPLs) for the MBEs, WBEs and other DBEs on a project-by-project basis.

DBE documentation must be submitted with the Bid. Bidders shall use the CRW form included in the Bidding Documents.
