DCED has temporarily cancelled all in person Meet & Confer meetings due to COVID-19. Remote meeting information will be sent out to the Meet & Confer distribution list as meetings are scheduled. See below for how to be added to this notification process for remote meetings.
It is the desire of the City of Cincinnati’s Department of Community and Economic Development to enhance economic opportunity through a public meeting called Meet & Confer. The meetings require an entity that receives City funding through our department for construction projects to meet and confer with minority, female and locally owned contractors/small businesses as well as trade unions. However, any interested contractor or supplier is encouraged to attend. The Meet & Confer meetings are held on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 9:00 am on 805 Central Avenue, II Centennial Plaza on the 7th Floor in the Griesel Room. The meetings explain the construction project scope, the use, extent of funds, what areas will be open for bids and more. Below you will find our previous and current year meeting dates in ‘blue’ with the respective agendas attached. Dates with no agenda will state, ‘Cancelled’. If you would like to be added to the Meet & Confer email distribution list, please contact Nyemah Stark at 513-352-3636 or Nyemah.Stark@cincinnati-oh.gov.
If you are a City Certified business through the Economic Inclusion Department, you will automatically receive our notifications. For more information on certification, please contact the Economic Inclusion Department at 513-352-3144 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
