FAQ The California Department of General Services maintains the official database of all qualified DVBEs. It provides company name, address, ownership, and certification status, and is searchable not only by key words, UNSPSC and NAICS codes. Access to this database is through the database contractor, BidSync, at Where can I find a list of qualified DVBEs?
FAQ A deep and extensive network of support organizations has been developed over the last 25 years since the passage of the DVBE program law. Both the Department of Veterans Affairs (CalVet) and the Department of General Services have professional staff that work with all stakeholders. CalVet also hosts a DVBE Advisory Board which meets quarterly to review program matters and recommend improvements. The Disabled Veterans Business Alliance has a professional staff that works with both government and private sector organizations to help qualify and match DVBEs with potential contracting opportunities. Additionally, taxpayer-funded groups like the Small Business Development Centers and the Procurement Technical Assistance Centers help DVBEs grow their businesses and prepare for the challenging world of government and corporate contracting. What resources are there to help us find DVBEs for contracting or subcontracting opportunities?
FAQ The Disabled Veterans Business Alliance works with both government agencies and prime contractors to identify and connect DVBEs with specific contracting opportunities. In addition, various organizations including the Alliance sponsor and/or participate in business matchmaking events. How can we vet DVBE firms for particular purposes?
FAQ The Insurance Diversity Initiative was established by Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones in an effort to focus on diversity issues within California's $123 billion insurance industry. What is the Insurance Diversity Initiative?
FAQ To California's minority, women, and disabled-veteran owned businesses (MWDVBEs or "diverse businesses"), this Initiative represents an open door to a once seemingly impenetrable market and thus increased business opportunities. The Department’s biennial Insurer Supplier Diversity Survey will now provide vital information to diverse businesses on where and how to search for new opportunities within the insurance industry. How does the initiative help diverse businesses?
FAQ Yes! The reports of the 2013 Survey are now posted and available online (www.insurance.ca.gov/diversity). The reports and the “Resource Documents” created give diverse businesses the opportunity to 1) find insurance companies who are dedicated to supplier diversity; 2) find out what kinds of programs and opportunities exist at a company; and 3) who to contact at the company if interested in a contract. As a diverse business, does the Survey provide helpful information to me?
FAQ We do not maintain a database of diverse suppliers. However, we want to give insurers the opportunity to meet California’s diverse businesses! This is why we hold an Annual Diversity Summit. At the 2014 Summit, we are planning to include a matchmaking session. What resources are available within the Department of Insurance as an insurer?
