Aug 22, 2019
The Good Faith Effort Transparency Report Ordinance requires completion of the GFETR by any contract bidder who seeks a waiver, full or partial. The Report must detail the bidder’s efforts regarding participation and inclusion, as well as the bidder’s reason or reasons for requesting a waiver. This ordinance will buttress the County’s commitment to participation and inclusion by Minority Business Enterprises and Women Business Enterprises. It will further enhance transparency; transparency which the 3rd District deserves and transparency which Cook County deserves.
