FPA Think Tank Challenges Editorial

April 26, 2011 No Comments by Raul Espinosa

The FPA Think Tank at UNF has challenged a Miami Herald editorial which opposed the Governor’s efforts to consolidate the State’s economic development activities. The State’s current procurement policies, the Think Tank claimed, have done very little to encourage the participation of small and minority firms in state and local contracting in 1,586 agencies throughout the State. The proposed consolidation of economic development functions will make it easier to achieve the needed cooperation to implement The Umbrella Initiative with its mission “to double the number of small and minority firms contracting with the federal, state and local governments by the year 2020.”
