CONTRACTS/PURCHASING - Small LOCAL Business Outreach Program
The Board of Supervisors for the County of Monterey has implemented a policy to promote the County of Monterey’s utilization of Local Businesses which are small or minority owned such as Disadvantaged Business Enterprises, Minority Business Enterprises, Woman Business Enterprises, Disabled Veteran Business Enterprises, in all aspects of contracting relating to construction, materials and services, professional services, land development-related activities and leases and concessions. The policy will apply to all County departments within the County structure. Under this policy, the County acknowledges that it is fully committed to encouraging the participation of DBE’s, MBE’s, WBE’s, DVBE’s and SLB’s in all phases of procurement and contracting activity within the scope of current and existing law.
The Small Local Business Outreach Program is for local DBEs, MBEs, WBEs, DVBEs and SLBs who are interested in doing business with the County. We offer online Self-Certification specifically for these types of businesses to formulate partnerships which create an environment of inclusion in County procurement and contracting.
