The City of New Orleans will present upcoming Green Infrastructure opportunities for businesses in person and virtually at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 1.
The presentation will take place at Thrive New Orleans, 3600 Desire Parkway. Registration is required for virtual participation and can be completed here. A zoom link will be sent before the event.
The purpose of the webinar is to proactively share information in order to increase bid competitiveness and strengthen procurement transparency and accountability. City leaders are also hoping to increase opportunities for local disadvantaged business enterprises (DBEs) and local workers, small businesses, and Section 3 businesses. Contracted work includes demolition, excavation, grading, drainage, building construction, landscaping, fencing, and roadway construction.
The webinar will cover topics like the City’s goals and priorities for these projects, background information on the City’s green infrastructure investments, opportunities to engage local disadvantaged business enterprises (DBEs) and local workers, and the bid timelines.
