(e) Grantee shall incorporate the foregoing requirements in all of its contracts for work relative to construction, maintenance and operation of the cable communications system, other than contracts for standard commercial supplies or raw materials, and shall require all of its contractors for such work to incorporate such requirements in all subcontracts for such work. Such contracts shall be awarded in such a manner as to maximize the opportunities for participation by firms owned and controlled by women and/or minorities.
(f) Upon request by the city, grantee shall annually submit to city a report on employment and contracts. Such report shall include a listing of employees by category (technical, clerical, marketing and managerial) and by race, ethnic background and sex and shall show the changes within each category during the preceding year.
