Learn how the California Department of General Services (DGS) helps to better serve small businesses. DGS will provide strategic information and tools about business services to state agencies including: contracting, procurement, and acquisition solutions; real estate management; leasing and design services; environmentally-friendly transportation and architectural oversight and funding for the construction of safe schools.

This workshop also includes an opportunity to talk to Advocates from the California Highway Patrol and the California Department of Corrections!  

Learn how to get certified! The Small Business (SB) and Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise (DVBE) Certification Programs were established by the State to increase business opportunities for the SB and DVBE community. These programs help SBs and DVBEs participate on a more level playing field when competing for state contracts.

Learn: how to get certified; how to use our data base to get solicitations; and how to market your business to the different state agencies.
