Construction Projects Monitored by the Department

Projects Monitored by MDHR

In 1985, state law established that the Commissioner of the Department of Human Rights (MDHR) issue goals and timetables for minority and female utilization in state funded construction projects. The purpose for these goals is to communicate to employers that when they choose to contract to do business with the state of Minnesota there is an expectation that they will employ a diverse work force. These goals are based on geographic area in the state and are expressed in percentages of the total hours of employment and training of women and minorities used on the project.

The MDHR Contract Compliance Unit is responsible for equal employment opportunity (EEO) participation monitoring and enforcement on each project and posts a list of current projects monitored on the MDHR web site. The list is updated monthly until the project is completed.

The criteria used by the MDHR to post construction projects on its web site includes the following three factors: (1) the project is an active project; (2) the project has a duration of more than 30 days, and; (3) the project has a minimum of 10,000 hours of work to be performed.

Project Grading System

Projects are graded using the following system:

1 = Meeting goals - contractor has met or exceeded workforce participation goals.

2 = Meeting good faith efforts - contractor has been audited and a determination is made that good faith efforts are being met. Ongoing monitoring will continue for this contractor.

3 = Goals not met - contractor has not met workforce participation goals. Contractor is currently being audited to measure good faith efforts.

4 = Failed to make a good faith effort - audit determination indicated that contractor failed to make a good faith effort to meet workforce participation goals.

TN = Projects that are too new to grade.
