Therefore, the Chief Executive Officer and the Board of Commissioners have made the success of local small businesses a permanent goal of DeKalb County by implementing the DeKalb First Local Small Business Enterprise Ordinance. PROVISIONS OF DEKALB FIRST LOCAL SMALL BUSINESS ENTERPRISE (LSBE) ORDINANCE Percentage of LSBE Participation Required 20% of Total Award Certification Designation Request For Proposals (RFP) LSBE Within DeKalb (LSBE- DeKalb) Ten (10) Preference Points LSBE Outside DeKalb (LSBE- MSA) Five (5) Preference Points Demonstrated GFE Two (2) Preference Points Certified Local Small Business Enterprises (LSBEs) located within DeKalb County and prime contractors utilizing LSBEs that are locally-based inside DeKalb County shall receive ten (10) points in the initial evaluation of their response to any Request for Proposal.

Prime Contractors who demonstrate sufficient good faith efforts in accordance with the requirements of the ordinance shall be granted two (2) points in their initial evaluation of responses to any Request for Proposal. Pro-rated points shall be granted where a mixture of LSBE-DeKalb and LSBE MSA firms are utilized. Utilization of each firm shall be based upon the terms of the qualified sealed solicitation. Prime Contractor(s) deemed responsible and remains responsive to an Invitation to Bid (ITB) because they are either a certified LSBE-DeKalb or LSBE-MSA firm or has obtained 20% participation of an LSBE-DeKalb or LSBE-MSA firm, submits the lowest bid price shall be deemed the lowest, responsive and responsible bidder. Prime Contractor(s) deemed responsible and remains responsive to an Invitation to Bid (ITB) and documented good faith efforts, submits a lower bid price than a Prime Contractor that achieved 20% LSBE participation, or otherwise required benchmark, then the Prime Contractor who actually met the Page 17 of 50 Air Quality and Noise Assessment Study At DeKalb Peachtree Airport RFP 22-500632 benchmark will be given the opportunity to match the lowest bid price of the Prime Contractor who only made good faith efforts. Prime Contractor(s) who choose not to match the lowest bid price, then the Prime Contractor who made the good faith efforts will be deemed the lowest, responsive and responsible bidder. For all qualified sealed solicitations, the Director of Purchasing and Contracting, DeKalb County Government, shall determine if the bidder/proposer has included written documentation showing that at least twenty percent (20%) of the total contract award will be performed by a certified LSBE. This written documentation shall be in the form of a notarized Schedule of LSBE Participation (Attached hereto as “Exhibit A”.) For all contracts, a signed letter of intent from all certified LSBEs describing the work, material, equipment and/or services to be performed or provided by the LSBE(s) and the agreed upon percentage shall be due with the bid or proposal documents and included with “Exhibit A”. The certified vendor list establishes the group of Certified LSBE’s from which the bidder/proposer must solicit subcontractors for LSBE participation. This list can be found on our website http://www.dekalbcountyga.gov/purchasing-contracting/about-purchasing-and-contracting or obtained from the Special Projects LSBE Program team. Prime Contractors failing to meet the LSBE benchmark must document and demonstrate Good Faith Efforts in accordance with the attached “Checklist for Good Faith Efforts” portion of “Exhibit A.” The notarized Schedule of LSBE Participation shall be due and submitted with each bid or proposal. Failure to achieve the LSBE benchmark or demonstrate good faith efforts shall result in a bid or proposal being rejected. Prime Contractors that fail to attend the mandatory LSBE meeting in person or via video conference shall mean that the Prime Contractor has not demonstrated sufficient good faith efforts and its bid or proposal if submitted, shall be deemed non-responsive without any further review. Upon award, Prime Contractors are required to submit a report detailing LSBE Sub-Contractor usage with each request for payment and not less than on a monthly basis. Prime Contractors shall ensure that all LSBE sub-contractors have been paid within seven (7) days of the Prime’s receipt of payment from the County.

Page 40 of 50 Air Quality and Noise Assessment Study At DeKalb Peachtree Airport RFP 22-500632 0 ATTACHMENT I SCOPE OF WORK AIR QUALITY AND NOISE ASSESSMENT STUDY ' AT DEKALB PEACHTREE AIRPO�T I. Background 1. In 2012, DeKalb County and Open DeKalb entered into a Memorandum of Understanding under which the County agreed to fund a thorough environmental study of the relative noise and pollution impacts of three different weights of aircraft: (1) those with maximum take off weights (MTOWs) below 66,000 lbs., (2) those between 66,000-75,000 lbs., and (3) those above 75,000 lbs. Note that a 4•h weigh class has now been added for piston aircraft. The County, Open DeKalb and DeKalb Peachtree Airport (POK) jointly drafted written goals for the study, which are attached to this technical proposal for reference. 2. In an effort to get a reliable study, the County and Open DeKalb agreed to assemble a series of round table discussions with technical experts in aviation, air quality, and noise pollution to explore what should be studied, what realistically could be studied, and which methodologies would best achieve the goals stated in the attachment to this technical proposal. The technical experts were representatives from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), The Georgia Environmental Protection Division (GA EPD), and the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT). 3. The County, Open DeKalb, and POK Airport held virtual round table meetings with the technical experts. Building on the results of the round table discussions, this document represents an initial draft technical proposal for a noise and emissions study at POK. This draft technical proposal will be the focus of upcoming round table discussions to finalize a solid scope of work that the County, Open DeKalb, and POK Airport can consider funding to achieve the goals listed in the Attachment. II. Purpose The Study is intended to provide data about the relative pollutant and noise emissions and air quality impacts in the community from four different groups of aircraft using POK, categorized by size/certified MTOW. See agreed-upon Goals in Appendix. The results should then be used by POK Airport owner, DeKalb County, to make decisions about the Airport and its operations and plan for the Airport's future in an informed manner. The study seeks in-depth research capable of giving the County credible data to make better-infonned decisions about Airport operations and development in its community environment. Ill. Aircraft Activity Data for Baseline and Future Year This work scope section provides the contractor with important details of the analysis of pollutants emitted by airGraft-operated at-POK airport.
