   13  specified in s. 288.703(4)(a)-(e), respectively.
   14         1. This paragraph does not preclude or prohibit a minority
   15  person from competing for any MMTC registration or any other
   16  procurement of goods or services awarded by the department.
   17         2. MMTCs have 12 months from the date of their registration
   18  to demonstrate to the department compliance with the minority
   19  business participation goal established in this paragraph.
   20         (i) Implement training programs and other educational
   21  programs to enable minority persons to compete for MMTC
   22  registration and contracts on an equal basis.
