Small Business and Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise Program

CAL FIRE Small Business and Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise Advocates

The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection has taken an aggressive approach to use small businesses and DVBE's in the procurement of goods and services.

To facilitate this participation level, the Small Business/DVBE Advocate will assist department procurement and contract staff in identifying small businesses and DVBEs that can provide required commodities or services. All procurement and contracting staff will demonstrate a "good faith effort" by attempting to satisfy procurement and contracting needs through certified small business or DVBE vendors prior to contacting other resources.
