Failure to Provide all Necessary Minority and Woman-Owned Business Enterprise Subcontracts Within Reasonable Time After Subcontract Award is Material Breach of Contact

Jay Dee/Mole Joint Venture v. Mayor and City Council of Baltimore, 725 F. Supp. 2d 513 (D. Md. 2010)

In an interesting decision issued by the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, the Court held that a prime contractor was in material breach of its contact with the City of Baltimore for not entering into promised subcontracts with Minority and Women-Owned Disadvantaged Businesses.

Under Maryland law, state and local public contracts typically require participation by minority, social, economic and woman-owned disadvantaged businesses (collectively “DBs”).  Such participation is usually accomplished by subcontracts, which are typically entered into post prime contract award.  To qualify as a bidder/offeror, however, the prime contractor must make certain certifications and representations as to how the DB participation requirements are to be met.
