We’re happy to announce that we have ini­ti­ated a three-month assess­ment of local health­care insti­tu­tions’ pro­cure­ment needs and local small busi­nesses’ capac­ity to ful­fill those needs. This study is the next step in the anchor insti­tu­tion strat­egy iden­ti­fied in Pros­per­i­tyNOLA, the city’s five-year plan for eco­nomic growth. Through a com­pet­i­tive bid process, NOLABA selected the Wash­ing­ton, D.C.-based Democ­racy Col­lab­o­ra­tive and local dis­ad­van­taged busi­ness enter­prise (DBE) part­ner DMM & Asso­ciates to under­take the study.
