SBDC Info Session: City of Champaign Diversity Advancement Program (CDAP)
May 9 @ 8:30 AM - 9:30 AM
Celebrating National Small Business Week: May 5 – 11, 2019
The City of Champaign Diversity Advancement Program (CDAP) encourages City departments, contractors, and other vendors doing business with the City to increase the amount of goods and services provided by local businesses owned by minorities, women, and other socially and economically disadvantaged groups.
The objectives of the CDAP program are to strengthen the use of businesses owned by women, racial/ethnic minorities, and other identified socially disadvantaged groups as defined in City purchasing and contracting policies, and to build capacity for these businesses through mentoring and training, and to develop and sustain a diverse pool of qualified businesses used by the City of Champaign. CDAP program requirements apply to all City purchases and are part of the City’s purchasing policies.
Rachel Joy, the City of Champaign’s Community Relations Manager/Compliance Officer, will provide an overview of program, including how to become a CDAP vendor. A Q&A session will follow the presentation.
