Summary:  The Forest Preserves requests authorization to enter into and execute a contract with Colette Holt & Associates (“CHA”) to conduct a disparity study. The study will review the operation of the Forest Preserves’ Minority- and Women-Owned Business Program to determine whether the Forest Preserves has a continuing compelling interest in remedying discrimination against minority- and women-owned business enterprises in its marketplace. This is a sole source procurement. CHA specializes in conducting disparity studies in the United States. CHA previously performed disparity studies in 2015 for various governmental entities which serve Cook County and its marketplace, including Cook County government, Cook County Health and Hospitals System, and the Forest Preserves. On 7/30/2020, the Cook County Board of Commissioners authorized a subsequent contract with CHA on a sole source basis (Cook County Agenda No. 20-3073).
