Our History

The City of Saint Paul completed an equal access audit in 2007 to examine the City's contracting and workforce development policies. HREEO was created as a result, to advance inclusive equitable business and procurement for the City of Saint Paul. 

Our department consolidated existing City resources to expand economic opportunity and work toward a more economically inclusive Saint Paul.
