Small Business Enterprise (SBE) Participation:
School Board Policy 6.143 allows for SBE participation goals and that firms awarded work on such projects fully participate in the SBE program. The Contract as a result of this RFP establishes SBE goals.

The Phase 2 GMP proposal includes 30% SBE participation for the CM Partner (Asset Builders) but no SBE participation for the sub-trades due to the limited scope of work and associated bid results.  However, Pirtle is committed to meet the 30% SBE sub-trade participation goal when they submit their Phase 3 GMP proposal in the near future.  Their total contract value (Phases 1, 2 & 3) will be evaluated when reviewing the overall SBE participation of the sub-trades.
