City of Mobile's First Supplier Diversity Program Awards Top Projects to Disadvantaged Businesses

June 26, 2017

“I commend the leadership of the City of Mobile’s very first Supplier Diversity Manager Archnique Kidd. We made a commitment to the citizens of Mobile that we would cut red tape within City government and we are fulfilling that promise. If you are a minority, woman, service disabled veteran or disadvantaged business enterprise, we will continue to present you with opportunities for City contracts. In order to truly realize One Mobile, we must endeavor to include everyone who is competitive, competent and capable in our process." - Mayor Stimpson

Mayoral Action:
