The Prime Contractor Development Program (PCDP) creates contracting opportunities for state certified Disadvantaged, Minority, Women and Emerging Small Businesses (D/MWESB) with the City of Portland.
Through the PCDP, contractors receive technical assistance in different areas of work, including sewer and water, street and park improvement, building construction and tenant improvements. The program also provides educational opportunities in job costing, bidding and estimating, along with business development. While these certified contractors benefit from participating in PCDP, the program also offers the unique opportunity for city bureaus to access a pool of contractors that has historically been underutilized.
The program and its contractors are a resource for both building a larger competitive bidding pool and for meeting the City’s social equity goals. We achieve our goals and complete our objectives by proactively increasing the participation and capacity of certified prime contractors who can perform the duties and assignments related to the City’s public works projects. This year a strategic planning process was initiated to further grow and enhance the program.
