The above NYSSPE legislative video discusses a recent push by the governor’s office to increase the Minority and Women Owned Business Enterprise (MWBE) goals for state projects in New York State. We have received many comments on this issue from both MWBE and non-MWBE entities. This video covers some of the benefits and possible pitfalls to an MWBE goal that is too high and too low.
Please comment below this video with your thoughts on this issue, so we at The New York State Society of Professional Engineers, can consider your opinions and experiences on this issue when we make decisions moving forward.
