Build Goals

Under the direction of Johns Hopkins Facilities and Real Estate, the university and health system are working to increase the amount of addressable spend that is committed to certified minority-owned, women-owned, disadvantaged businesses (MBEs) and local business enterprises (LBEs).

Johns Hopkins plans to:

  1. Continue to encourage the participation of MWBE and LBE firms on Johns Hopkins D&C projects: Achieve 20% of addressable spend with MWBEs by FY 2026, achieve 20% of addressable spend with LBEs
  2. Strengthen economic inclusion programming by conducting a comprehensive assessment and review of the Johns Hopkins Design & Construction Marketplace 
  3. Expand technical assistance and capacity building programs
  4. Broaden outreach, engagement, and networking opportunities with internal and external stakeholders
