Pathways to Procurement — Port NOLA Small Business Contracting Opportunities
Local and small businesses are a critical part of creating economic vitality in the region. As a part of the Port’s Procurement objectives, we aim to increase the proportion of funds spent with qualified local and small business firms in construction, professional services, and goods and services.
The Port strives to develop mutually valuable professional relationships with local and small businesses to increase the number of small businesses, including minority-owned, women-owned, disadvantaged firms and Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Businesses applying and competing for Port contracts.
