DVBE Participation

The Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise (DVBE) program requires that California governmental agencies and regulated companies and utilities that award contracts for goods and services strive to expend not less than 3 percent of the cumulative value of all of their contracts on DVBE firms (3 percent goal). The citizens of the State of California honor their service-disabled veterans by having them benefit financially from doing business with the State. The DVBE program directs California governmental entities and regulated companies and utilities to procure goods and services from firms, such as Stay Safe Solutions, Inc., that have been certified as meeting the strict DVBE eligibility criteria required by law. Most bid opportunities also include at least a 3 percent DVBE participation requirement. Stay Safe Solutions can help your firm win your bid and meet your Commercially Useful Function (CUF) DVBE participation requirement.

Service-disabled veterans and small businesses are the only groups that currently receive targeted opportunities for California’s billions of dollars in annual contract awards. Our mission is to use our significant bid preferences and bid incentives to help make your business or agency successful.


The VA has recently confirmed that micro-purchases (current $10,000 threshold) are now subject to VETS First and the Rule of Two.  This prioritizes an additional $5 billion in annual procurements for SDVOSB.

The VA is planning to award at least 15% percent of its total contract dollars to service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses (SDVOSBs) and 17% to veteran-owned small businesses (VOSBs). Stay Safe Solutions qualifies for both categories.

Supreme Court of the United States Seal

In a recent, unanimous ruling, the Supreme Court said the VA MUST set-aside contracts for SDVOSBs and VOSBs if the agency finds two or more firms in those categories can do the work. The VA MUST first consider SDVOSBs and VOSBs (in that order) before other small business program preferences.

California Utilities Logo

The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) regulates services and utilities, including electricity, natural gas, railroad, rail transit, passenger transportation, telecommunications, and drinking water.  California law requires these regulated companies that provide California citizens access to safe and reliable utility infrastructure and services to include service-disabled veteran companies in their procurement and contracting activities.

These targeted procurement inclusions allow Stay Safe Solutions to help you increase your sales in these significant marketplaces.
