Mayor Eric Garcetti and the Los Angeles Business Council recently launched the Regional Alliance Marketplace for Procurement (RAMP), a portal that centralizes both public and private procurement opportunities. RAMP will address procurement reform and equitable access to contracting opportunities

“Making it easier for small and diverse businesses to have access to more procurement opportunities has always been a core priority to further expand equity in our city,” said Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti. “RAMP has come together with the support of the business community and local organizations, and we are excited for the new opportunities that will be available to all types of small businesses across the region.”

RAMP is a unique solicitation portal designed to provide the small business community with a centralized hub for contracting opportunities with the City of Los Angeles, as well as other public and private entities. RAMP expects to make available more than $10 billion in procurement opportunities in its first year.

Guest Speaker Jack Ochoa will share more details on the benefits of using the platform and how to gain access.
