CCSD Invites Business Owners to Take Survey for Disparity Study

The Clarke County School District has engaged Griffin & Strong, P.C. (GSPC) to conduct a Disparity Study to determine whether there is a significant statistical disparity between the availability of qualified, willing, and able minority- and women-owned firms and the utilization of such businesses by CCSD.

The Disparity Study will gather information necessary to determine whether all qualified firms have the maximum practicable opportunity to compete for and participate in CCSD’s procurement of prime contracts and associated subcontracts and, if indicated by the evidence, will support the use of strategies to ensure such opportunities.

In addition, GSPC has partnered with Creative Research Solutions to create and distribute the following survey of business owners. The survey is designed to capture demographic, statistical, and anecdotal information regarding businesses, their operating capacity, and impressions on doing business or attempting to do business with CCSD. The survey takes approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. We encourage your participation and look forward to your feedback on how CCSD can improve diverse representation in public contracting.
