City Purchasing and Contracting Services

Labor Equity in Construction Contracts

The City is committed to ensuring access for women, people of color, and others with social and economic disadvantages, particularly those in Seattle, in pursuit of construction careers.

City Purchasing and Contracting Services implements policies to support career pipelines and employment of such workers through City funded construction contracts. This program is directed by Nancy Locke, Director; Daniel Villao, Labor Equity Program Manager; Anna Pavlik, Labor Equity Program Supervisor; and Jeanne Fulcher, Program Analyst.

The City requires Apprenticeship on all City construction contracts above $1 million in value. The City is studying policies and practices in Seattle and elsewhere to determine improvements that increase worker diversity on construction sites.

Construction Careers Advisory Committee

Seattle City Council passed a Resolution to form a Construction Careers Advisory Committee to review the City's current contracting program and outcomes, best practices from other jurisdictions and make policy and program recommendations based on their work. The following links provide background information on the scope and potential budget for the Advisory Committee.
