Benefits of Working with a SBE/DVBE
Small businesses and veteran-owned businesses are often flexible, committed to excellence, and relationship-oriented. With their experience in the military, veterans bring values of integrity, honesty, hard work, and entrepreneurship into their businesses. Working with diverse suppliers such as ICON can help you fulfill project goals and requirements, ensure your bid is responsive, and increase the likelihood of your bid’s success. The State of California requires that 3% of all government contracts are awarded to disabled veteran owned businesses. In addition, many utilities, governmental agencies, federal projects, and other organizations aim for at least 25% Small Business or DVBE participation. This encourages prime contractors and subcontractors to partner with SBE/DVBE companies. The City of San Diego has goals to maximize participation of Small Local Business Enterprises (SLBE) and Emerging Local Business Enterprises (ELBE) on contracts by the City.

Some of these benefits include:
California law (AB 1084) provides a 5% bid advantage to Small Businesses. State agencies may use a streamlined process, known as the SB/DVBE Option, by contracting directly with a California certified small business for goods, services, information technology and Public Works projects. The solicitation must be valued at more than $5,000 and the State agency must obtain price quotes from at least two California certified Small Businesses.
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 Code of Regulation, Title 2, subchapter 1896.1 and 1896.3 provides our business which is physically located in an Enterprise Zone Act (EZA) and Target Area Contract Preference Act (TACPA) additional bid preferences for contracts that exceed $100,000.00.
