TOTAL MWSBE SPEND

From our

Chief Procurement Officer

In 2019, the City of Charlotte continued to honor the strategic call to action for fair and equitable access to opportunities, increased support and advocacy, and economic mobility for our great Minority, Women, and Small Business Enterprise (MWSBE) partners. Through the city’s Charlotte Business INClusion (CBI) Program, and in concert with our elected officials and business community, we continue our steadfast commitment to support equity, diversity, and inclusion on your behalf.

We are excited to announce that Fiscal Year 2019 resulted in tremendous growth in MWSBE certifications, opportunities, contract awards, and spending. For a fifth straight year, the city has surpassed prior year spending, resulting in $133,268,593 paid to certified MWSBE firms. Our intentional focus on capacity building, outreach, and targeted opportunities resulted in 23.47% growth in minority certifications, as well as increased participation in city contracting opportunities by MWSBE firms.

We hope that you find this Fiscal Year 2019 Annual Report informative and thank you for your commitment and partnership. We reaffirm our commitment to ensuring that our MWSBE community is thriving. On behalf of the CBI team, our community partners, and the hundreds of advocates supporting inclusion initiatives across the city and throughout our community, we are grateful for the opportunity to serve side-by-side with you in this endeavor.

Yours in grateful service,

Kay Elmore,

Chief Procurement Officer and Acting CBI Program Manager

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone.
