M/WBE Mission

The Department of Design and Construction is committed to creating an equitable and competitive business environment while ensuring the agency’s procurement reflects the diversity of New York city.


The Office of Diversity and Industry Relations (ODIR) develops, implements and monitors innovative policies and procedures to promote compliance with NYC Local Law 1. Central to our mission is our belief that a diverse pool of vendors can serve as a major engine of economic opportunity to significantly enhance the prosperity and vitality of all communities in New York City.

The Business Development Unit (BDU) prepares qualified M/WBEs to do business with DDC.

The M/WBE Compliance Unit reviews all procurements to maximize M/WBE opportunities and monitors those contracts for compliance.
