• Nondiscrimination/Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action Practices

    Effective June 26, 2016, amendments to the Nondiscrimination/Equal Employment Practices/Affirmative Action provisions were approved. As of July 1, 2016, the process of completing and uploading forms on the Los Angeles Business Assistance Virtual Network (BAVN) are no longer required for these provisions.

  • Anticipated Employment Utilization Report

    The form below applies to construction contracts involving an expenditure of $25,000 or more of City funds. Prior to the recent amendments, this form would have been required as part of the bid process. However, as of June 26, 2016, the Contractor (or Subcontractor) may need to complete this form at the request of the Awarding Authority or the Designated Administrative Agency (DAA). The report sets forth anticipated minority, women, and all other staffing utilization by the contractor and all subcontractors on each project constructed by the City using those trades within the area of jurisdiction of the Los Angeles Building and Construction Trades Council within the City of Los Angeles in each work class and at all levels in terms of staff hours. The anticipated levels of minority, women and other staffing utilization shall be the levels at which each of those groups are represented in the relevant workforce in the Greater Los Angeles Area as determined by the U.S. Bureau of the Census and made available by the Office of Contract Compliance (Population Percentages by Trade for Los Angeles County).
    Attainment of the anticipated levels of utilization may only be used as an indication of whether the contractor has complied with the requirements of this section and has applied its Affirmative Action Plan in good faith and in a nondiscriminatory manner. Failure to attain the anticipated levels of utilization shall not, by itself, disqualify the contractor for award of a contract or subject the contractor to any sanctions or penalties.

    In no event may a contractor utilize the requirements of this section in such a manner as to cause or result in discrimination against any person on account of race, color, religion, ancestry, age, disability, medical condition, marital status, sex, sexual orientation, or national origin.
