Compliance and Reporting
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.
Bexar County makes available TXDOT Form 2193 “External Discrimination Complaint Form” for individuals seeking to file complaints under Title VI. Go to the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program Policy to access the form.
If an External discrimination complaint filed under Title VI against the County in which the County is named as the respondent is received by any county staff, the Complaint will be given to the Title VI coordinator. The Complaint will be copied and logged. The Complaint will be electronically copied and posted on the county shared drive in the Title VI folder.
The Complaint will be forwarded to TXDOT for investigation within 10 calendar days of receipt by Bexar County.
The County’s designated person for issues concerning Equal Employment Opportunity is Kristina Brunner. She can be contacted at 211 S. Flores Street, San Antonio, TX 78204, 210-335-2545.
A Workforce Report and an Equal Employment Opportunity Plan and Policy are completed by the Human Resources Department staff biannually. A copy of the report is issued to offices and departments along with appropriate guidelines to assist hiring authorities in reaffirming the County’s commitment to providing equal opportunity to all employees and applicants.
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
- Vendor certification
- Contract Management
- Audit and report capabilities
The database module is user-friendly and is accessible to all county employees and contracted vendors.
