Disparity Study

METRO is committed to ensuring that it provides equal opportunity and fairness in all its procurement matters. As part of that commitment, METRO engaged Mason Tillman Associates, Ltd. to conduct an independent disparity study to determine if minority and women-owned business enterprises were underutilized in the award of METRO’s prime contracts and subcontracts. Below is a copy of Mason Tillman’s final report.
