2016-2018 Goals

During its first three-year phase, HopkinsLocal set specific goals for construction project commitments, hiring, and purchasing by FY 18.  These included:

  • Filling, by 2018, 40 percent of targeted positions by hiring from within the city’s most distressed communities
  • Increasing by at least $6 million over three years the amount of goods and services the university and health system purchase from Baltimore-based businesses, including those owned by minorities and women
  • Enlisting at least 24 suppliers from outside the area and holding them accountable to hire, procure, and invest locally
  • Spending at least $20 million in design, consulting, and construction work with minority, women, and disadvantaged businesses by applying new targets across all Johns Hopkins construction projects

Results from all three years of the first HopkinsLocal phase in comparison to the initiative goals are available in the Three-Year Report
