In 2013, the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, in partnership with the Small Business Development Centers of Texas,
launched the Texas Small Business Needs Assessment Poll. The poll is an annual survey of small business owners consisting of
11 key questions on topics including firm size, performance, strategy, financing and the employee skills gap. The data collected
will shed light on challenges, successes and changes for small business owners and help identify emerging issues, areas of
strength and needed improvements in Texas’ small business community.

The Camino Real Regional Mobility Authority (CRRMA) held a Meet & Greet sponsored by the Contract Opportunities Center, the SBA – El Paso District office and Emma Acosta, El Paso City Representative District 3. Approximately forty people attended the Meet & Greet and took the time to learn about the approximately $400 million in projects in the region.
The CRRMA was created by El Paso City Council in 2007 and has the authority to operate within the City of El Paso, County of El Paso and across jurisdictional lines into the State of New Mexico and the Country of Mexico (e.g. international bridges). The CRRMA has been involved in over $1 Billion worth of major transportation projects since the CRRMA’s creation in 2007 and provided different roles in the various transportation projects pursued to date, including planning, financing, design, construction, operation and maintenance.
Several projects are currently in design and under construction but there are still plenty of contracting opportunities available.
