A goal of 29.3% in non-rental car concessions and a 3.8% in rental car concessions for ACDBE participation will be proposed for the time period of October 2023 to September 2026; these goals must be achieved on an annual basis.</p><p>The ACDBE goal, which will be achieved through race– and gender-neutral measures, is established pursuant to 49 Code of Federal Regulations, Part 23 and FAA guidance. Due to an absence of a disparity study, rather than setting ACDBE goals, the city imposes small business outreach requirements on its contracts to foster small business and ACDBE participation.</p><p>Details about the proposed ACDBE goal are available for public review and inspection at the city's Equal Opportunity Department, 200 W. Washington St., 15th floor, during regular business hours for 30 days following the date of this notice.
