About

The Contract Compliance Division (CCD) monitors City of Minneapolis construction and development, commodities and supplies, and professional and technical services contracts by enforcing related local and federal civil rights and wage laws and policies. CCD monitors City contracts to ensure that minorities, women and low income business owners and workers have access to employment and contracting opportunities and that workers are paid appropriate wages. CCD is responsible for ensuring compliance in five primary program areas: affirmative action, minority and women business inclusion, minority and female employment, Davis Bacon and prevailing wage, and HUD Section 3 contracting and employment. CCD is also a certifying agency of the Minnesota Unified Certification Program (MNUCP), a statewide collaboration, certifying disadvantaged businesses.
