Infrastructure Industry Day Teleconference 2021

On January 19, 2021, more than 140 participants from small and large businesses learned about contracting opportunities with the City of New Orleans from senior members of the infrastructure team. The quarterly Infrastructure Industry Day was held as a teleconference due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"The City has an unprecedented amount of work going on across the city and there is much more coming down the pipeline. We want to make sure that you know about it and that everyone has an opportunity to compete – that’s why we host these events quarterly. In addition to connecting businesses with the many upcoming opportunities, my administration is excited to share with our business leaders our new approach for better oversight of our DBE participation. This is an extraordinary amount of work and I look forward to how much we can accomplish together with our local businesses,” said Mayor Cantrell.


The City has now approved nearly $300 million in bonds for tax-exempt sale, which will lead to multiple building and roadway projects out for advertisements. In the next 60 days, the City will have approximately $110 million of Joint Infrastructure projects going out to bid. In the next 60 days, the City will have approximately $10 million of capital projects going out to bid. This includes building renovations at the New Orleans Fire Department Headquarters Phase II, playground renovations at George Washington Carver and renovations at the New Orleans Police Department Firing Range. Finally, in the next 60 days, the City will have approximately $100 million of green infrastructure projects through its Hazard Mitigation Grant Program and HUD-funded Gentilly Resilience District. 


"We not only continued our infrastructure work throughout this pandemic, we also fast-tracked it," said Ramsey Green, Deputy CAO for Infrastructure. "This is a historic and rare moment - when the city has significant federal, state, and local infrastructure funds - to improve our infrastructure while simultaneously providing economic opportunity to our local businesses. Our regular Infrastructure Industry Days are designed to be a resource for the contracting community, and we are thankful for the broad participation of local businesses." 


Yesterday, Mayor Cantrell announced the move of Supplier Diversity under the Finance Department and the improvements the City is making on the DBE bidding and procurement process. She also touted a range of work being initiated or planned across the city. On the capital side, the City currently has 10 projects under construction valued at more than $71 million. Between maintenance projects and the Joint Infrastructure Program, the City currently has 69 Department of Public Works projects under construction valued at nearly $480 million.
