Tampa International Airport
Tampa International Airport is the 29th-largest commercial service airport in the
United States, with approximately 230 commercial aircraft departures occurring daily.
Its supplier diversity program began more than 25 years ago and, on average, woman-
and minority-owned business participation in all design and construction has been 15-
16%, and 20% in concession, from businesses including Bay Coffee & Tea Company,
Vistra Communications, Foresight Construction Group,Tinsley Family Businesses and
VoltAir Consulting Engineers. In 2013, the airport embarked on the first phase of
a 20-year Master Plan construction project. From the estimated cost of $1 billion,
$122.8 million was targeted for participation by woman- and minority-owned firms,
but that number has now been exceeded. More than 145W/MBE subcontractors have
been paid $130.6 million, and final payments are projected to reach $172.4 million
at the airport. In June 2015, the governing board for the airport approved its largest
concessions redevelopment plan ever, which increased its minority-owned business
participation from three concession companies to 15 and resulted in $16.8 million in
revenue for fiscal year 2016.
