Contract Requirements

Information on various contract requirements administered by Small Business Development Division.

Community Workforce Program

The Community Workforce Program (CWP) was established and approved by the Board of County Commissioners (BCC) on January 23, 2003. The Program, which was designed to provide job opportunities to local residents of traditionally underserved and underdeveloped neighborhoods, went into affect May 5, 2003.

To achieve the objective of the program, all Capital Construction Projects and Work Orders are subject to the inclusion of a workforce goal. This goal is established the County and is a percentage of labor force that a County awarded contractor/subcontractor must hire from within the DTA in which the construction project/work order is located in accordance with the governing ordinance 03-237. Not less than 10% of the labor force must come from the DTA in which the public improvement is located.

Contractors may utilize persons from nearby DTAs to meet the workforce goal only after they have proven with supporting documentation that labor was not available from the respective DTA and/or did not have the required skills needed the meet the job requirements. Contractors may be given relief or release from a Workforce Goal in whole or in part, contingent upon the submittal of adequate justification in accordance with the governing legislation.

If your contract with Miami-Dade County has a CWP goal, you must submit a CWP Workforce Plan. For more information, call Caesar Suarez at 305-375-3141.

Successful bidders on County construction projects are required to post job opportunities through the County’s Job Clearinghouse at: Job Clearing House/Community Workforce Program. The database resides with Career Source South Florida who matches the requirements of submittals with available workforce in their database and provides a list to contractors for possible interviews and hiring.

If you are in need of labor to fulfill your contract’s CWP goal, as a part of your own recruitment efforts, you may complete a Notice of Job Opening form; based on your labor requirements and availability, a list of available labor will be sent to you for review.
