Sound Transit

Sound Transit intends to spend more on its future projects than any other local public agency and desires for diverse businesses to receive their fair share. The agency has contracted with our firm, Griffin & Strong, P.C., to conduct a Disparity Study that will analyze its spending and provide guidance on future spending opportunities with small and diverse businesses.
