The Indiana Department of Administration (IDOA), Indiana Department of Transportation and public colleges from across the state have conducted a disparity study related to their procurement and contracting procedures.

The agencies and public colleges who have participated will use the study information as they consider future implementation of the state’s MBE, WBE and DBE programs.

The study includes:
  • Accounts from business owners and other industry representatives about working in Indiana
  • Experiences of discrimination based on race, ethnicity or gender in the Indiana marketplace, if any

  • 2010 Disparity Study
