HOUSTON (PRWEB) October 11, 2019
With a desire to aid local commerce and to promote economic development and job creation, Port Houston (PHA) has commissioned a disparity study to evaluate equal opportunity and fairness in its procurement and contracting process.
The Port has partnered with Griffin & Strong, P.C. (GSPC), a law and public policy consulting firm, to complete this study. The study will gather information necessary to determine whether all qualified firms have the maximum practicable opportunity to compete for and participate in PHA’s procurement of prime contracts and associated subcontracts and, if indicated by the evidence, will support the use of strategies to ensure such opportunity.
Griffin & Strong, P.C. will kick off the study during an informational session on October 22nd. This meeting will provide the community the opportunity to ask questions, learn about the study process, and discuss how they can participate. The meeting will be held:
Tuesday, October 22nd, 2019
4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Port Houston Authority - Executive Office
1st Floor Training Room
111 East Loop North
Houston, Texas 77029
