Pursuant to Senate Bill 19-135, a disparity study was conducted in 2020 for the State of Colorado by Keen Independent Research. The purpose of the study was to examine the utilization and availability of State contracts to businesses owned by people of color, women, persons with physical or mental disabilities, and members of the LGBT community. The final report was provided to the Colorado State Legislature on December 1, 2020.
Keen Independent completed the 2021 Oregon Statewide DBE Disparity Study for the Oregon Department of Aviation and other NPIAS airports.

Keen Independent worked with the City of Baton Rouge, Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport and BREC (the operator of public parks and recreation facilities) to develop a new joint Baton Rouge certification program for socially and economically disadvantaged businesses.
Keen Independent helped Arizona Game and Fish (AZGFD) re-design and update its 2020-2021 Hunting and Fishing Regulations manual based on research gathered through focus groups with users and staff across Arizona.
One Arizona hunter commented, “This is the best I have seen it in over 30 years!”
Keen Independent Research prepared the final 2020 State of Colorado Disparity Study for members of the general assembly and the executive director of the department of personnel for December 1, 2020 receipt.
It is the largest and fastest successfully delivered study of its kind.
