CalPERS

DVBE Incentive and Small Business Preference

All CalPERS solicitations comply with the Military and Veterans Code by providing a 1 to 5 percent incentive to proposers who commit to a percentage of Disabled Veteran Business Enterprises (DVBE) participation.

In addition, CalPERS extends a 5 percent bid preference to California-certified small businesses. The Small Business Preference is also available to uncertified businesses that claim 25 percent participation by a certified small business subcontractor.
