Mayor Bloomberg signs historic into 911a bill into law

January 8, 2013

Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg signed into law Intro 911, which helps strengthen the City’s Minority and Women-owned Business Enterprise (MWBE) program by building on the achievements of Local Law 129, passed in 2005. Local Law 129 helped increase the number of M/WBE firms certified to participate in the City’s program from 700 to more than 3,500, with certified firms winning more than $3 billion in City contracts. By removing the program’s $1 million cap on contracts, the legislation increased the overall value of program-eligible contracts from $400 million to $2.2 billion, allowing M/WBEs to compete more effectively for higher-valued contracts. The legislation also increased accountability for City agencies to meet their contracting participation goals, as outlined in Local Law 129.
