Portland-Milwaukie Light Rail Project Proposal DBE Consulting Services
Donaldson Enterprises, as DBE Outreach Coordinator, outreached to over 500 DBE certified firms for the Portland-Milwaukie Light Rail project proposal on behalf of several contractors (Granite Construction, Hamilton Construction Company and Railworks dba Willamette Community Connectors).
We coordinated an open house event where interested sub-contractors had the opportunity to review the project and meet several key personnel from the project team. We documented all activities as appropriate and over 100 companies responded to our outreach. As a result, the team submitted a well defined DBE Subcontracting Plan and met several DBE certified firms. TriMet solicited proposals from qualified general contractors to provide Construction Manager/ General Contractor (CM/GC) Services as part of the Portland-Milwaukie Light Rail Project. As a result, each member of the team increased their internal database systems and knowledge of available certified firms with the data collected.
