4a-60g of the Connecticut General Statutes. The above definitions apply to the contract compliance requirements by virtue of
Section 46a-68j-21(11) of the Contract Compliance Regulations.
The awarding agency will consider the following factors when reviewing the bidder’s qualifications under the contract compliance
(a) the bidder’s success in implementing an affirmative action plan;
(b) the bidder’s success in developing an apprenticeship program complying with Sections 46a-68-1 to 46a-68-17 of
the Administrative Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies, inclusive;
(c) the bidder’s promise to develop and implement a successful affirmative action plan;
(d) the bidder’s submission of employment statistics contained in the “Employment Information Form”, indicating
that the composition of its workforce is at or near parity when compared to the racial and sexual composition of
the workforce in the relevant labor market area; and
(e) the bidder’s promise to set aside a portion of the contract for legitimate minority business enterprises. See Section
46a-68j-30(10)(E) of the Contract Compliance Regulations.

and submitted with the bid for this contract. The contract awarding agency and the Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities
will use the information contained thereon to determine the bidders compliance to Sections 4a-60 and 4a-60a CONN. GEN. STAT.,
