One of the greatest values of a comprehensive Small M/WBE Program is to develop and implement the plan, work through the challenges, evaluate the accomplishments, and celebrate the successes. Tracking allows TCCD Team to document successes. The critical area for the plan is the tracking component for construction. The approximate $400 million in TCCD Capital Improvement Program will be one focused on monitoring and tracking Small M/WBE participation.
A systemwide tracking program will be developed by the TCCD team to provide a uniform procedure. Timeliness in capturing measurable results is key to the tracking process. The tracking program will allow testing and evaluation of critical program components on a monthly basis. It will also assist in the evaluating of “best practices.”
Tracking documents will require a monthly commitment from all partners involved. Reporting forms will be developed by the TCCD team to capture all elements in a timely manner. The areas designated for tracking include:
Small M/WBE Participation
TRACKING SYSTEM COMPONENTS
Prime Contractor Good Faith Small M/WBE 1st Tier Participation Compliance
2nd Tier Participation
