About Labor & Business
The Labor and Business work team is a standing committee of the ITTF with a primary focus on providing Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBEs) with appropriate support and information, assisting in the development and evaluation of the Native American Hiring Preference, and supporting capacity building for Tribes, Tribal enterprises and businesses owned by Tribal Members.
This work team has an established goal of increasing the support, awareness, utilization and capacity of emerging, newly certified and existing Native American Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (NADBEs) for participation in the construction industry. Specifically this group works to identify, support and monitor NADBEs through the certification process and the number of contracts earned.
