Disabled Veteran and Small Business
Did you know?
That as a state agency, Fresno State is mandated by the State of California to do business with California Certified Small Businesses (SB) and Certified Disabled Veteran Business Enterprises (DVBE).
Fresno State Must Report
California State University, Fresno's Procurement and Support Services Department must submit to the legislature an annual report that tracks contract award activity involving DVBE's and SB'S. The report must demonstrate that various participation goals have been met or exceeded. If the minimum goals are not met, Fresno State must provide a sound justification and the remedial action they will take to attain or exceed the goals the following year.
You Have the Power to Help
As a department, you can help Fresno State meet its goals by using your Pro-Cards to purchase from California Certified Small Businesses and DVBE's.
On our Staples website you can limit your searches to Small Business and DVBE products.
The Procurement department will assist by helping to source your Purchase Requisitions to a California Certified Small Business and/or a Certified Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise.
If you need help with the Staples website or finding SB or DVBE vendors, contact Brian Cotham, Fresno State Small Business and DVBE Advocate @ 559.278.2893 in the Procurement Department for more information.
