Commitment to Diversity and Chesterfield Businesses
Chesterfield’s diversity provides for a dynamic and robust community that promotes growth. We believe that all residents should benefit from this economic growth regardless of race, color, religion or economic status. We are committed to ensuring diversity by increasing procurement opportunities for the following:
- Businesses located in Chesterfield County (CB)
- Minority-owned businesses (MOB)
- Service disabled veteran-owned businesses (SDVOB)
- Small businesses (SB)
- Woman-owned businesses (WOB)
Definitions for these classifications are in the Code of Virginia Section 2.2-4310, as amended.
We encourage these businesses to respond to all solicitations. We strongly encourage our suppliers to actively solicit subcontracting opportunities from these businesses for their county contracts.
