S&S is a Disabled Veterans Business Enterprise
S&S Fence is a fully certified DVBE (Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise) program participant. As a DVBE program participant, S&S Fence has been involved in many DVBE projects throughout the state of California and we have much experience in this area.
The Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise (DVBE) Program was established to acknowledge disabled veterans for their service to our country. The state established a DVBE participation goal of at least 3% and each state agency establishes their own method for attaining that goal.
If the minimum three percent goal is not met, the state agency must provide their reasons for not meeting the goal and an implementation plan for future DVBE participation. The Department of General Services (DGS) established a DVBE incentive pursuant to Senate Bill 115 chaptered October 3, 2005 and the Military and Veterans Code section 999.5(a).
The new regulations applies to all public works bids. For each applicable contract, prime contractors must achieve the minimum DVBE participation goal or demonstrate they made a “Good Faith Effort” to achieve participation.
The five legally defined “Good Faith Effort” steps are:
1. Contact was made with the awarding department to identify DVBEs.
2. Contact was made with other state and federal agencies and with local DVBE organizations to identify DVBEs.
3. Advertising was published in trade papers and papers focusing on DVBEs, unless time limits imposed by the awarding department do not permit that advertising.
4.Invitations to bid were submitted to potential DVBE contractors.
5.Available DVBEs were considered.
