  • Making recommendations about how to increase contracting opportunities for minority-owned vendors.

If it is determined that any vendor has not made a good faith effort to include minorities in its workforce and/or in its subcontracting activities, the RCL Board of Directors may choose to terminate the business relationship/contract
