REMINDER: Business Diversity Program and Utilization Report

Last year, Mayor Lightfoot issued Executive Order 2021-2 (EO), which requires all contractors with City agreements to submit an annual report about their company's Business Diversity Program. As a result, the Business Diversity Program and Utilization Report (BDPR) is due on July 1st of each calendar year from all contractors, with limited exceptions. A dedicated microsite with reporting forms and FAQs can be found at http://www.chicago.gov/bdpVendors who have not completed their report should do so without delay.

Thank you for your cooperation and assurance that your company is an equal and accountable partner in building a more diverse Chicago.
