Passive House techniques create well-ventilated buildings that lose extremely little heat compared to conventional buildings.

DASNY Demostrates Leadership with MWBE Contracting

DASNY President & CEO Gerrard P. Bushell has made MWBE contracting and compliance everyone’s responsibility at DASNY by establishing accountability for executing on MWBE contracting at every level of the organization.

Dr. Bushell created the Resource Acquisition Unit. It combines the focus on MWBE contracting involvement of DASNY’s Opportunity Programs Group (OPG) with the partnership development know-how of our Procurement Unit. 

DASNY now treats MWBE contracting and project delivery as one. Members of the MWBE and Procurement units interact on a daily basis. The change makes MWBE involvement a focus even before a contract is drawn up. It then remains a focus through the life of the contract.

All of DASNY’s contracts flow through Resource Acquisition. The team must approve every MWBE utilization plan for contracts that fall under the law that dictates participation. Before a contract is closed and final payment made, the team reviews actual MWBE participation. It assesses fines if participation falls short of goals.
