[ARCHIVED] Cities of Norfolk and Hampton Join Forces to Promote Public Project Procurement Opportunities

Millions of dollars are available to small, women and minority-owned contractors

NORFOLK, VA - More than $5 Billion of construction projects are gearing up and city economic departments are looking for local contractors and entrepreneurs to attend a virtual event on March 16th and 17th from 9AM – 12PM on both days. This two-day, virtual event is a one-stop opportunity to learn from the experts and to create a win-win-win for everyone.

The “Bridging The Connection” virtual event will begin on day one with a welcome from Mayor Kenneth C. Alexander of Norfolk and Mayor Donnie R. Tuck of Hampton. The interactive sessions that follow will include Virginia partners from The Virginia Department of Small Business and Supplier Diversity and will provide participants information about certifications and award requirements. Overall, the sessions over the two days will provide an overview of what the projects entail, instructions on how to navigate the bidding process, and information on what’s coming next.

City project representatives will review upcoming opportunities for Norfolk’s St. Paul’s Transformation of Tidewater Gardens, and Hampton’s Mary Jackson Neighborhood Center and Aquatic Center.

In partnership with this two-day event is Hampton Roads Connector Partners (HRCP). HRCP is the design-build contractor for the $3.8 Billion Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel Expansion Project. In addition to contracting opportunities, there are many jobs coming available soon.
