Small-Business Owners Weigh In on WSSC Disparity Study

Darryle Brooks said small businesses trying to obtain contracts for various jobs with the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission must go through too much bureaucracy.

Danielle Gittens doesn’t mind competing against other small businesses to work with WSSC, but not against them and bigger companies. They were among the more than a dozen consultants, small-business owners and minority firms who spoke Thursday morning at WSSC’s headquarters in Laurel, Maryland, about the organization’s disparity study. The report will look to assess whether merchants have done, attempted, or want to do work with the commission.
