This contract is subject to the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) "fair share policy", which includes EPA-approved "fair share goals" for Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) and Women Business Enterprise (WBE) firms in the Construction, Supplies, Equipment, and Services procurement categories. EPA's policy requires that applicants and prime contractors make a good faith effort to award a fair share of contracts, subcontracts, and procurements to Minority Business Enterprise and Women-Owned Business Enterprise firms. Although EPA's policy does not mandate that the fair share goals be achieved, it does require applicants and prime contractors to demonstrate use of the six affirmative steps. The current fair share goals for the State of Texas are as follows: MBE: CONSTRUCTION 12.94%; EQUIPMENT 7.12%; SERVICES 10.84%; SUPPLIES 9.68%: WBE: CONSTRUCTION 8.72%; EQUIPMENT 5.39%; SERVICES 5.72%; SUPPLIES 9.34%

Any Contract or contracts awarded under this invitation for proposal are expected to be funded in part by financial assistance from the Texas Water Development Board.
