To effectively serve as a liaison linking Small, Minority, Female and Disadvantaged Businesses with City of Atlanta related business opportunities, and to encourage equal opportunity for all businesses and individuals in the Atlanta workplace. The City of Atlanta Mayor's Office of Contract Compliance (OCC) is comprised to service and administer programs on formal contracts in the Aviation, Watershed, and General Fund Departments.
The mission of the Mayor's Office of Contract Compliance's Equal Business Opportunity Program is to mitigate the effects of the past and present discrimination against women and minority business. The City of Atlanta has found that African American, Female, Hispanic, and Asian American owned businesses have suffered the effects of racial and gender discrimination in both public and private markets, resulting in the disproportionate award of contract dollars to non-minority or non-female businesses. It is the responsibility of the Office of Contract Compliance to promote full and equal business opportunity for all persons doing business with the City of Atlanta.
