SMALL MINORITY WOMAN-owned BUSINESS ENTERPRISE (SWMBE) PARTICIPATION. It is the MNAA’s objective to promote, encourage, and stimulate participation of local, small, minority and woman-owned business enterprises (SMWBE) within its organization and the economic community served by it so as to provide maximum opportunities to participate in contracts, programs and all related business activities of the MNAA. MNAA will apply the local small minority woman business participation levels where expenditures and purchases are made with non-federal funding, and to all contracts, leases, management agreements, consultants, prime contractors, subcontractors, respondents, proposers, or proposers involved in the performance of a commercially useful task for MNAA.

Proposers are encouraged to meet SMWBE participation levels established by the Director, Business Diversity Development, or, if unable to meet the participation level, engage in good faith efforts to joint venture, subcontract, or contract for supplies or services with SMWBEs. The attainment of the SMWBE participation level established for this contract is to be measured as a percentage of the total dollar value of the contract. The SMWBE participation level established for this Contract will be 10%. For information on eligible SMWBE firms, proposers should visit https://flynashville.com/nashville-airport-authority/business-opportunities/business-diversity-development or contact Business Diversity Development, at (615) 275-2718.

RIGHT TO REJECT ANY AND ALL PROPOSALS. MNAA proposes to award the Contract to the lowest responsive and responsible Proposer, provided it has met the goals for SMWBE participation or, if failing to meet the goals, has made an acceptable good faith effort to meet the established goals for the SMWBE participation. Proposer is advised that MNAA reserves the right to reject any and all Proposals submitted, to waive any and all informalities, irregularities and/or technicalities in any Proposal or Proposal Guaranty, to accept any Proposal deemed advantageous to it and to negotiate changes, deletions, or additions to these Contract Documents with the successful Proposer.
