Chicago Public Schools

We worked with the third largest school district in the United States to ensure its $4.5 billion Capital Improvement Program served as a vehicle for economic development in its local economy. RGMA was retained to design and subsequently implement and manage various M/WBE initiatives—from financing and training, to communications and technical assistance—that, over the course of four years, resulted in participating M/WBEs earning in excess of 40% of the total program expenditures.

IMPACT: Record breaking M/WBE expenditure levels for a major capital project in Chicago.
