DFW OUTREACH INITIATIVES
The Airport’s commitment to the achievement of equitable contracting opportunities is the principal reason in establishing an outreach component.  The outreach efforts are designed to document initiatives and establish procedures which best inform, present, and achieve results for maximum consideration and participation by D/S/MWBEs.  Key actions to the Airport’s outreach efforts are internal and external communication as well as interaction by staff and the D/S/MWBE business community.
