Construction Contractors

The Minnesota Department of Human Rights (MDHR) sets Workforce Goals for people of color, Indigenous people, and women on state construction projects. 
 
To help ensure contractors are making good faith efforts to meet Workforce Goals, MDHR requires contractors to complete a Preconstruction Packet before a construction project begins and submit Monthly Project Reports throughout the project.
 
If you have been notified by MDHR, another state agency, or a prime contractor that you must submit a report, use the forms and information below.

Preconstruction Packets

The purpose of the Preconstruction Packet is to intentionally develop a work plan on how contractors will work to meet Workforce Goals and describe outreach efforts to grow the pipeline of people of color, Indigenous people, and women in the trades. 
 
Prime contractors are required to submit the Prime Contractor Preconstruction Packet and all Subcontractor Preconstruction Packets, which should be completed by each subcontractor on the project. Packets are due before a project begins.  
 
Instructions on how to complete and where to send the finished packet are at the beginning of each packet.

Both packets are fillable PDFs. 
 

Monthly Project Reports

Monthly Project Reports are status reports on how contractors are doing to meet their Workforce Goals. 
 
Prime contractors are required to submit the Prime Contractor Monthly Report and all Subcontractor Monthly Reports, which should be completed by each subcontractor on the project. Reports are due on the 10th of each month. 
 


Download Monthly Project Reports  

Both reports are Excel Sheets. Download the reports each month because changes may have made from month to month. 
 


Results from monthly reports for projects estimated to be over 10,000 hours are posted monthly on our website under the Projects Monitored tab on the Workforce Goals page.
