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.

Projects in the PCDP range from $5,000 to $1 million.  

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.

Applications will open in January 2021.
