HOW WE CAN HELP YOU
We are committed to helping government agencies and private companies fulfill their supplier diversity needs. We enable suppliers and bid partners to compete for set aside bids for Federal , State/County/Local agencies, and California Regulated Public Utilities.
$7.5 Billion Set-aside Advantage
Public Law 108-183 creates a set-aside provision for SDVOSB’s in federal contracting. Every federal agency must attempt to set-aside at least 3 percent of their annual contract awards to Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses. California law also mandates that State agencies award at least 3% of their contract awards to certified Disabled Veteran Business Enterprises (DVBEs). California regulated public utility companies also have a legislated goal of 1.5% for certified California DVBE's.
$5 Million Sole Source Advantage
Public Law 108-183 provides Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSB’s) with sole source opportunities up to $5 million per contract.
With Public Law 109-461the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) elevates SDVOSB’s to the top of the list for procurement opportunities. This legislation also provides competitive set-asides, improves sub-contracting partnerships, and allows sole sourcing up to $5 million dollars per contract.
5% Bid Advantage
California law (AB 1084) provides a 5% bid advantage to Small Businesses. When we bid contracts using your products, our quote will be very competitive and highly successful.
Additional Bid Advantages
California Code of Regulations, Title 2, Subchapter 1896.6, allows a non-small business to claim a 5% small business preference if they commit to subcontract at least 25% of the net bid price with our certified small business company.
California law (AB 941) requires each state agency and department to appoint a DVBE Advocate to assist each certified DVBE firm in increasing their contract awards. In addition DVBE firms are notified electronically of all state contract opportunities. No cost ads can be placed on these electronic bid notifications advising prime contractors of our ability to provide subcontractor components. Our suppliers benefit from this substantial marketing advantage.
