One of our readers received this via email from the city the other day:
You are invited to participate in the El Paso City Accelerator Inclusive Procurement Survey because you have been identified as a business owner/associate in the City of El Paso. The purpose of the survey is twofold. It will help the City develop a profile of regional businesses, and it will gather information on business certifications and interest in a future certification program by the City of El Paso.
This survey will also allow the City to identify and develop the infrastructure needed to establish a certification program.
The survey will take no more than 10 minutes of your time. Your answers will be held strictly confidential, and in no way affect your business’ standing. Note that if you have multiple businesses, we would very much appreciate it if you would complete a survey for each business. We encourage non-profit and for profit organizations to exclude themselves from taking the survey to ensure that each business is properly counted when developing the regional business profile and assessing certification needs.
They encourage non-profit and for profit organizations to exclude themselves from taking the survey…
Do they bother to read what they put out?
We deserve better
