Enhancing opportunities for minority- and women-owned subcontractors
All qualified businesses — large and small — should have equal opportunities to compete and succeed. Throughout its history, Rogers-O’Brien Construction has promoted and cultivated participation among minority and woman-owned firms (M/WBE) on its construction projects. Our objective is to increase the visibility, improve the economic viability and develop opportunities for the utilization of local and M/WBE businesses. Our proven track record has helped to foster mutually beneficial, ongoing relationships.
As a leader in the community of commercial building contractors, Rogers-O'Brien works with several minority contractor trade organizations, contractors groups, community assistance agencies, and individual firms to help solicit and encourage participation. Some of these organizations include the Dallas/Fort Worth Minority Business Council, City of Austin Department of Small and Minority Business Resources (SMBR), Austin I.S.D. Community Mentor Protégé Initiative (CMPI) program, and the South Central Texas Regional Certification Agency (SCTRCA).
Coordinating with these local and national organizations, Rogers-O’Brien:
• Provides early identification and alerts for M/WBE/HUB subcontractors and suppliers about work and bid opportunities.
• Surveys M/WBE and HUB availability.
• Provides technical assistance and management support.
Rogers-O'Brien's minority and women business program is unequivocally embraced and supported by our Chairman, Pat O’Brien, and our President, Preston McAfee. While Rogers-O'Brien does not have M/WBE or HUB status, our track record is long and positive in the utilization of minority business enterprises and women business enterprises. Our culture is one of relationships and team building, partnering and community service. Rogers-O'Brien participates in and supports local and regional mentoring programs which help to increase minority and woman owned subcontractor availability and expertise.
