Contracting with Small Businesses

Port contracts are a great opportunity for small businesses of all types to engage and partner on waterfront development. Contracts regularly include needs for engineering, environmental, and real estate professional services, construction trades, and general service providers.

The Port strives to promote diversity in contract opportunities and uplift communities that have been historically disadvantaged. We seek to connect local, small, and historically underutilized businesses to resources and opportunities by providing equitable and diverse solutions to Port businesses, contractors, and consultants. 


"Small businesses are the backbone of the City's economy and they contribute hundreds of millions of dollars to our local economy." 

- Elaine Forbes, Port Director
