NAMWOLF DOC: Response to Missouri Public Commission Public Request for Information

The Missouri Public Service Commission was interested in gathering information concerning the benefits Missouri’s regulated utilities might reap, and the concerns they

might face, when seeking to procure goods and services from diverse suppliers. Toward this end, the Commission is opened a file to receive information and documents from potentially interested entities.

Our response to the State of Missouri Public Service Commission was two-fold. The first section answered in order the questions put forward by the Commission, where our organization’s expertise and knowledge were applicable. In the second section, we provided an explanation of how NAMWOLF can be of service to the agency and its regulated companies in meeting their supplier diversity goals. We strongly encouraged the regulated utilities to join our Corporate and Public Entities Partnering Program as a way to ensure minority and women owned law firms can

fairly compete for outside legal work.

Finally, we enclosed a copy of Public Utilities Commission of the State of California General Order 156 as an example of a highly developed and successful program designed to increase participation of diverse suppliers. We hoped that it would provide insight and direction as they develop the program.
