Don't Let the Competition Gain the Advantage!

Dillard & Associates is a certified Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise (DVBE) supplying career staffing opportunities on a Temporary, Temp-to-Permanent and Direct Hire basis and offers its resources to vendors bidding on state contracted work. 

The State of California spends billions of dollars each year on contracts and procurement. The Small Business and Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise (DVBE) programs help small businesses and California disabled veterans to compete more effectively for a portion of the billions of dollars that are competitively awarded through the State's bidding process.

For all agencies, the State has established a small business participation goal of at least 25% and a DVBE participation goal of at least 3%. The goals apply to the overall dollar amount expended each year by an awarding department.

CalVet has set its DVBE and small business participation goals at:
      • DVBE: 5% participation
      • Small Business: 25% participation

Dillard & Associates satisfies the following DVBE Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible for certification the business must meet the following criteria:

    • Must be at least 51% unconditionally owned by one or more disabled veterans or must be 100% unconditionally owned by one or more disabled veterans if the business is a Limited Liability Company.
    • Have its daily operations managed and controlled by one or more disabled veterans; the disabled veteran(s) who manages & controls the business is not required to be the disabled veteran business owner(s).
    • Have its home office located in the United States; and the office cannot be a branch or subsidiary of a foreign corporation, foreign firm or other foreign-based business.

Certification Benefits

  • State agencies are required to award at least 25% of their annual contracting dollars to certified SBs and at least 3% to DVBEs.
  • State agencies may give a 5% bid preference to certified SBs and may offer up to a 5% DVBE bid incentive.
    • As a certified DVBE and/or SB, your business is added to the DGS' data-base which State agencies use to find DVBEs and SBs.
    • Ability to participate in streamlined procurements known as SB/DVBE Options. Contracts awarded using the SB/DVBE Option are valued from $5,000.01 to $249,999.99 for goods, information technology, and services (or valued up to $250,000 for public works contracts). This option enables State agencies to contract directly with certified businesses when they obtain price quotations from at least 2 responsible and responsive SBs or at least 2 responsible and responsive DVBEs.

Added DVBE Incentive, Effective 10/09/07:


The Department of General Services (DGS) established a DVBE incentive pursuant to Senate Bill 115 chaptered October 3, 2005 and the Military and Veterans Code section 999.5(a).  The new regulations apply to all competitive solicitations for public works, services, goods, and information technology goods and services posted or released after October 09, 2007. The DVBE incentive is required in solicitations that include DVBE program requirements and may be offered in other competitive solicitations. The DVBE incentive offers state agencies a tool to increase their DVBE participation while still allowing the flexibility to exempt a contract from the participation requirement should the department deem it necessary.  Each state agency should incorporate the use of the DVBE incentive into their plan or strategy to ensure achievement of at least three percent DVBE participation on their total contract dollars.
