Metro Blue Line Signal System Rehabilitation – SBE/DVBE Outreach and COMP
TSG supported Mass. Electric Construction Co. (MEC) during the proposal phase for the Metro Blue Line Signal System Rehabilitation project, providing SBE/DVBE Pre-Bid Outreach and developing MEC’s SBE/DVBE Contracting Outreach and Mentoring Plan (COMP). This marked one of the first times LA Metro used a COMP, which is designed to establish Mentor-Protégé relationships among contractors and help smaller, less-experienced firms learn how to better navigate the world of public construction.
MEC was ultimately selected as the winning bidder, and TSG is now implementing the COMP by helping to create Mentor-Protégé pairs and facilitate formal training and information-sharing sessions. We are also handling all Jobs Coordination and Labor Compliance responsibilities, providing MEC a one-stop-shop for compliance on this important project, which is crucial for the long-term efficient functioning of the Blue Line.
