Denver International Airport Sets Record-Breaking $742 Million in Contracts Awarded to HUBs and SBE-Certified Firms Since 2021

Denver International Airport (DEN) has set a record by awarding $742 million in contracts to historically underutilized businesses and Small Business Enterprise (SBE)-certified firms since 2021, reflecting a 105% increase over the previous three years. DEN not only surpassed federally determined business contracting goals but also implemented equity enhancements in its procurement process, requiring detailed EDI considerations, mandatory submission of an Equity, Diversity, and Inclusivity Plan, and fostering feedback through outreach events like "Taking Flight at DEN" and "Meet the Primes."
