Affirmative Action Assurance Application

The City of Dayton requires an Affirmative Action Assurance (AAA) form be approved by the Human Relations Council for all entities that may be awarded contracts involving any expenditure or cumulative expenditures in a calendar year requiring City Commission approval.

The AAA form must be completed electronically via the City’s online vendor portal, CityBOTS ( Older paper/PDF versions of the AAA form are no longer being accepted.

Important Note for City of Dayton Vendors/Contractors:  Due to the City of Dayton Department of Finance’s 2017 closeout procedures, we are unable to process AAA forms until January 12, 2018.  You can still submit your AAA form online, but it will not be processed until January 12 at the earliest.  We apologize for the inconvenience.
