In a recent Marin Independent Journal article by Richard Halstead regarding the scheduling of infrastructure projects using a racial component, Mr. Halstead does not include the following:
- Cities routinely do minority contractors' set asides for any contract involving Federal money.
- San Francisco has a 25% set aside (being able to exceed the next nearest contractor bid by 25%) for minority contractors.
- Novato also has a minority set aside when federal money is involved.
I'm sure if you were to check for other Marin minority set asides you would find something similar.
