The Targeted Business Program also establishes a Veterans Inclusion Program to ensure that our veterans have every opportunity to participate in the Project. The Veterans Inclusion Program will include efforts to include small veteran-owned businesses. See the RFP Proposal Manual for Subcontract Category specific MWBE goals.

respectively. The Equity Plan applies to all subcontractors and suppliers of all tier levels. The Veterans Inclusion
Program will also include efforts to utilize veteran in the construction workforce. Proposers are expected to use all
necessary and reasonable means to comply with the Equity Plan, including without limitation soliciting work from a broad number of Targeted Businesses and for work scopes suitable for their participation.
