BART seeks members for Business Advisory Council

BART is seeking new members for its Business Advisory Council (BAC) for the 2017 to 2019 term and your organization is invited to apply for membership.

The BAC was established in 2010 to encourage communications between the District and the small business community and to advise the District in its efforts to ensure that small businesses are afforded equal opportunities to participate on District contracts and agreements. Small businesses include Disadvantaged Business Enterprises, Disadvantage Veteran Business Enterprises, Minority Business Enterprises, Women-Owned Business Enterprises and Micro Small Business Entities.

The BAC currently consists of 15 members representing the small business community covering geographical areas of the BART’s service area as well as representation from the following industries: professional services, architecture and engineering, procurement and construction. Committee members serve a two-year period, on staggered terms. Meetings are typically held every two months from 10 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at District facilities.

Members are involved in providing valuable feedback on BART’s contracting, services and procurement policies, programs and practices.
