Will San Francisco’s transit authority give preference to LGBT contractors?

 

The San Francisco Bay Area Transit Authority (BART) could give preference to LGBTQ contractors in an update to the agency’s Small Business Program, launched in 2011.

“BART’s full board is likely to vote at its September 14th meeting to add LGBT contractors to the program that provides bid preferences for qualified small businesses,” it said in a statement, noting LGBTQ businesses still face barriers in the marketplace, especially in the construction industry.

If passed, it would make LGBTQ contractors eligible to receive a 5 percent bid preference on small business prime contracts.
