The business environment in which the SMWBE Program operates is complex. A great deal of data is needed to support the program's business requirements and reporting duties. The reports are reviewed by the County's SMWBE Program Advisory Committee and annually by Commissioners Court.
The Contract & Diversity Management System (CDMS):
The Contract and Diversity Management System (CDMS) is used to determine and report the County's service and product acquisition activities. The system is also used for the solicitation of Request for Proposals (RFP), Invitation For Bids (IFB), and Request for Quotes (RFQ) that provides SMWBEs with the opportunity to participate and receive awards.
The CDMS is a best practices type of tool used to manage contract compliance in order to determine whether or not the SMWBE program is meeting its Mission.
The CDMS is providing current process information for:
Compliance tracking for constitution, supply, and service contracts
Audit and report capabilities
The database module is user-friendly and is accessible to all county employees and contracted vendors.
