Local Business Initiative
The first phase of the Opportunity Roadmap, the Local Business Initiative, gave local businesses an opportunity to get "pre-screened" to work with the proposed Golden Pass LNG export project.
Businesses that successfully completed the pre-screening process were placed on a list for priority consideration. Golden Pass hired Veriforce, an expert in contractor screening, to facilitate the application process. The "no fee" application process for Jefferson County businesses closed January 15, 2016.
Businesses located in Jefferson, Orange, Hardin, Jasper, Newton, Liberty, Tyler and Chambers Counties as well as the Bolivar Peninsula area of Galveston County that are interested in working with the project are encouraged to register with CCZ JV, the project’s Engineering, Procurement & Construction contractor, to receive priority consideration for work.
Placement on the list does not guarantee work for the project. Businesses on the list will receive priority consideration for work on the project, but must complete the qualification process and meet all Golden Pass project requirements in order to compete for selection.
LOCAL BUSINESSES have joined the Local business initiative.
MINORITY-OWNED OR HISTORICALLY UNDERUTILIZED BUSINESSES (HUBS) FROM JEFFERSON COUNTY ARE SUCCESSFULLY ENROLLED.
