The City of Madison is proud to have values that support and sustain our resources being invested in our partners that will help us advance equity. In order to make sure that City of Madison dollars and the dollars of our tax payers are aligned with our values, we will be conducting contract compliance on all projects we fund.
Contract Compliance provides education, evaluation and enforcement of the City's equal opportunity and affirmative action policies for all companies doing business with the City of Madison.
This is accomplished through various meetings, trainings, audits, onsite visits and mandatory reporting, including affirmative action plans. Contract Compliance is also responsible for monitoring the compliance of non-exempt contractors, developers, community-based organizations, vendors and suppliers with Madison General Ordinance 39.02 and their affirmative action plan.
