King County has been recognized by the Northwest Mountain Minority Supplier Development Council (NMMSDC) as the Public Agency of the Year. This award comes thanks to the efforts of Sandy Hanks and the Business Development and Contract Compliance (BDCC) team in FBOD.

NMMSDC covers a seven-state area, linking major corporations and public agencies to minority-owned businesses for the past 38 years. King County received the highest number of nominations ever for a public agency, and beat out contenders like the City of Seattle, City of Portland, and Multnomah County, Oregon.
