MLGW News Release
Comprehensive Disparity Study and Policy Formulation
November 20, 2012

MGT of America, Inc. is conducting a study of the utilization of Minority- and Women-owned Business Enterprises (M/WBE) for Memphis Light, Gas, & Water (MLGW). The study will examine the procurement of services and products for MLGW, the subcontracting practices of prime contractors/service providers who do business with MLGW, and the anecdotal evidence collected from a broad cross section of M/WBE and non-M/WBE firms.

Businesses will be randomly selected to participate in one of the following activities that are to be scheduled over the next few weeks:

  • Surveys of Vendors
  • Personal Interviews
  • Focus Groups

This is a great opportunity for you to provide feedback regarding your experience doing business with or attempting to do businesses with MLGW. If you are contacted to participate in one of these activities please take the time to do so. In addition you can participate in one of two public hearings being held:
