M3 Consulting is a minority-owned management-consulting firm that provides research and support in a range of services to clients in the public and private sectors. M3 Consulting has been in business since 2005. It is the successor firm to D.J. Miller & Associates, Inc., which was incorporated in 1986 and conducted the country’s first disparity study in 1988. Our corporate headquarters are located at 400 Pryor St., #4068, Atlanta, GA 30302. M3 Consulting practice generally encompasses six broad areas:
- Procurement Consulting
- Human Resources Consulting
- Inclusive Policy Initiatives and Opportunity Creation (DBE, EEO, Housing, Agriculture)
- Economic and Statistical Research
- Organizational Development and Business Process Improvement
- Construction Management Support
Under our Inclusive Policies and Opportunity Creation area, M³ Consulting specializes in designing DBE policies, implementing program initiatives, evaluating the economic impact of minority and women business development, providing technical assistance to federal, state and local DBE programs, and conducting factual predicates required by the Richmond v. Croson decision. Our consultants have conducted disparity studies covering 120 public entities (includes consortiums) nationwide over the past twenty years.
M3 Consulting has always been on the cutting-edge. We correctly anticipated the direction of the U.S. Supreme Court by creating and conducting the first disparity study for Hillsborough County, prior to the Court’s holding in Richmond v. Croson. It has now been over 30 years since the first goal-based programs were implemented and over 25 years since D.J. Miller & Associates, Inc. conducted the first disparity study. Understanding the direction of the Court and the mood of the country, our objective is to ensure that our clients are not caught off guard, if the courts should declare that the current burden of goal-based programs is not justified by current needs.
