Write Up:

Ensuring MoDOT spending is reflected in all Missouri communities helps advance economic development for all business enterprises. By reviewing historical data, opportunities for improvement are identified. These improvement efforts include training staff who have procurement authority and reaching out to minority, women and disadvantaged business enterprises to encourage them to become certified as well as focus on inclusion efforts.

Results from fiscal year 2021 show an increase of $1,000,000 in MWDBE expenditures compared to FY 2020. The percentage of MWDBE expenditures to total expenditures also increased 0.3% from 4.9% to 5.2%.

This measure will continue to track the department’s efforts to ensure the vendor pool is representative of the business community, including MWDBE firms.

Purpose of the Measure:

This measure tracks the department’s non-program spending with certified minority, women and disadvantaged business enterprises.

Measurement and Data Collection:

Data is obtained from the statewide financial accounting system expenditure reports and United Missouri Bank purchasing card reports. Certified vendors are maintained in a statewide procurement vendor database. Vendors may be certified through the Office of Administration as well as the Missouri Regional Certification Committee. Included in these expenditures are items such as materials, equipment, tools and supplies. Program spending, including construction, design consultants, local agencies, highway safety and multimodal programs and exempted activities such as utilities, postage, organizational memberships, conferences and travel is excluded from total dollars spent.

The target for this measure is an average of the availability percentage of minority-owned and women-owned businesses and MoDOT’s most recent five-year average utilization. This target will be updated annually in October.
