All contractors who receive notice that they are the low bidder on a Capital Improvement Program or Capacity project are required, within ten days, to submit their MWLBE Utilization Plan, detailing how they intend to meet the SCA's 30% MWLBE utilization goal. The utilization plan will identify all subcontractors that a prime contractor is considering using on that project.
The utilization plan is submitted through the SCA’s Vendor Access System and is reviewed by staff in the Business Development Department. If the submitted plan achieves 30% MWLBE subcontractor participation, it will be accepted and the prime contractor will receive an email acknowledging acceptance. If it does not achieve 30% MWLBE participation, the plan will be rejected and sent back to the prime for additional work so it can be resubmitted.
