Executive Summary - Contracting Barriers and Factors Affecting Minority Business Enterprises A Review of Existing Disparity Studies

Contracting Barriers and Factors Affecting Minority Business Enterprises A Review of Existing Disparity StudiesAnalysis of public contracting data indicates that substantial disparities exist between minority and non-minority business enterprises.
