Small businesses to do Freedom Center work




The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center has awarded 40 percent of its construction contracts, for a total of nearly $15 million, to small business enterprises.

The bidding process began in November 2001 with a four-city regional tour of public meetings co-sponsored by the African American Chamber of Commerce and the Southern Ohio Minority and Business Development.

Thirty trade contracts have been awarded, the largest being $2.4 million to Rock Masters for stone cladding. Nearly 90 percent, or $36 million, of the total contracts have been awarded.
