 1.     The purpose of Certification is three-fold:
  • To ensure increased availability of disadvantaged, small, minority and women-owned business enterprises;
  • To ensure the integrity of the D/S/M/WBE Programs and that the business process is implemented for its intended purposes; and,
  • To ensure the integrity of the D/S/M/WBE firms participating in Airport procurements, as well as other diversity and inclusion initiatives offered by the Airport.
