Diversity and Inclusion

VCC is committed to creating and continually improving an environment of inclusivity and diversity. Building sustainable relationships and partnering with small, minority and women-owned business enterprises (SMWBE) is more than just a corporate responsibility. We do not just work to meet the requirements, but we are dedicated to creating an impact in the community and exceeding them.

Methods and Outreach

VCC is pledged to the outreach and inclusion of SMWBE’s. We solicit bids from local and diverse companies for all trades, provide a fair and open selection process, and are committed to tracking SMWBE participation. Our selection process includes:

    • Detailed take off and unit count of each trade represented on project drawings
    • Create a bid recap which breaks down project by building and by trade
    • Analyze the trades and scopes identified to select which areas are best suited for SMWBE participation
    • Cross check the list with our existing trade partner database

In addition to our existing trade partner database, we extend efforts to broaden our contacts by implementing the following practices:

  • Make contact with SMWBE associations and organizations
  • Establish and maintain contacts with local SMWBEs
  • Attend SMWBE procurement conferences and trade fairs
  • Identify sources from SBA’s Small Business Source System
  • Perform periodic reviews of ability, experience and capacity available from SB and SDB firms, providing necessary assistance when required
  • Utilize government resources to seek out certified or registered small or disadvantaged companies
  • Solicit bids by advertisement through SMWBE trade organizations and development centers

We Remain Dedicated to Excellence in Construction Every Day
