Public Works & Engineering created the “Contracts in Five” initiative in 2008 as a platform to increase opportunities for minority and women-owned consulting firms to obtain Engineering Services contracts from Public Works & Engineering. Over the last nine years, this program has evolved and experienced a progressive increase in participation.
More importantly, Contracts in Five has caused Public Works & Engineering to exceed MWBE goals set by the City of Houston.
A venture that began with invitations to a handful of engineering firms has now developed into a premier engineer networking event with over 500 engineers in attendance.
Contracts in Five is designed to provide networking opportunities between major engineering consulting firms and minority, women-owned, small consulting firms in Engineering, Design, and Construction Management.
