Overview of Accessing L.A
Accessing LA, the City of Los Angeles’ premier flagship networking program, is the collaboration between Mayor Garcetti’s Office of Economic Development, Office of Budget & Innovation, various Council offices, the Chief Procurement Officer, the Board of Public Works and the Bureau of Contract Administration. AccessingLA is presented in three series, BuildWith, TeamWith and RiseWith, each of which has a particular emphasis that brings together several City departments, public agencies, and contractors (both primes and subcontractors).
Accessing LA’s aim is to provide opportunities to create meaningful relationships, valuable perspectives and an abundance of resources to promote economic development and contracting with the City of Los Angeles. The Accessing LA events create a dynamic tight-knit community for those who want to do business with the city and other public agencies in the greater Los Angeles area.
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, in lieu of in-person events, virtual workshops will be held to share information and resources on how to do business with the City.
