MWESB Outreach Consultant, 9/2009-6/2011
Coordinated MWESB outreach for this highly specialized project with aggressive goals for workforce development and subcontracting. Provided outreach consulting, scheduled open houses and pre-bid meetings, implemented and monitored a minimum of 15 percent apprenticeship utilization, and prepared invitations to bid. Monitored and documented all outreach efforts and reviewed proposer participation goals as part of the award process. Apprenticeship utilization goals were met and MWESB participation exceeded project goals. As a result, certified firms working on the project grew skillsets and capacity while forming a working relationship with JE Dunn for consideration on future projects.
“Suzanne Donaldson provided exceptional customer service on the Port of Portland Deicing Treatment Facility project. Her interactions with subcontractors, certified firms, and the owner were very well received. With her oversight, focus, and commitment, we beat our participation goal. She has been a pleasure to work with and it is without a doubt that I highly recommend her.”Bruce Van Hine, Project Manager, JE Dunn
