(A) In addition to the general findings set forth in Section 12D.A.2, and based upon the record before this Board, the Board finds that the evidence before the Board relating to the award of prime contracts for commodities and general services for fiscal years 1992-93, 1993-94, 1994-95, 1996-97, 1997-98 and 1998-2003 reflects that MBEs and WBEs continue to be disadvantaged by discriminatory practices when competing for such contracts. The Board further finds that race-neutral measures employed by the City have not prevented such discriminatory practices from occurring.

(D) The Office of Contract Administration shall also maintain a central office where all bids, requests for proposals and solicitations will be listed and kept current.
