DSBO develops and enforces programs to increase the participation of minority, women, and small business enterprises in city construction, professional design and construction services, and DEN concession contracting. Please start by reviewing our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).
Once a contract has been awarded, goals or the defined pool is monitored by DSBO's compliance staff to determine whether the participation dollar amounts, percentages, and commitment level upon which the contract was awarded are maintained over the term of the contract.
You can file a complaint if your payment for work you've performed is late. Denver's commitment to the prompt payment of all contractors is demonstrated in the Payment Alert & Investigation Desk program, called GetPAID.
