Davenport Disparity Study

The commission takes particular pride in being a partner with the city of Davenport in its effort to fund the city's (and to our knowledge) the state of Iowa's first Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Disparity Study. The study seeks to work with Mason Tillman Associates, Ltd., from Oakland, California.

Mason Tillman will help determine whether or not a statistically significant disparity exists between the number of minority-owned and woman-owned business enterprises (M/WBEs) that were ready, willing, and able to provide goods and services to the City and the number of M/WBEs that were actually providing goods and services to the City. The study will focus on four industries-construction, design and engineering, professional services, and general services in the city of Davenport.
