Establishing Equity In Contracting With The State Of Arizona
"The general approach to the State's contracting likely hasn't changed much in the last century, despite the extraordinary explosion of small, women- and minority-owned businesses both across the nation and within the State of Arizona. As a State, we need to take a bold, fresh look at increasing opportunities for all businesses, thereby creating market competition and adding value to what the State receives for every dollar it spends. This is our mission: we don't intend to predict the future, we mean to generate economic opportunities for all Arizona businesses thus creating a necessary element to improve our ever-struggling economy-COMPETITION!"
-Janet Napolitano, Governor, State of Arizona
