Working in partnership with City departments/agencies and other local, State, and federal agencies, the EOCP monitors and enforces equal opportunity and public contracting laws related to the use of construction contractors, consultants, vendors, and suppliers.

Mentor Protégé Program

The Mentor Protégé Program, developed in cooperation with the Associated General Contractors of America, San Diego Chapter (AGC), has been designed to produce a broad base of high quality, competitive and profitable construction companies through incremental improvement. It is a deliberate effort to address and subsequently overcome barriers that typically inhibit or restrict the success of emerging minority and women-owned construction companies and assist with maximizing their economic opportunities.
