DIFFICULT GOALMANY PLACES TO STUMBLE

  • Large Construction Contracts

  • System Wide Contracts

  • MEAs

  • Contracts with large Suppliers such as Dell & HP

  • Commodities without DVBEs

  • Laws do not help much

What do we do?

Change have to get l.jpg
Change “have” to “get”

  • This is an opportunity

  • Win-Win: CSU meets goals; Suppliers are developed


Outreach l.jpg
Outreach

  • DVBEs are small businesses.

  • Promoted by state

  • 1) Need to locate DVBEs

  • 2) Determine their skills & products

  • 3) Develop them as CSU suppliers


Relationships l.jpg
Relationships

  • System tends to discourage relationships

  • Develop relationships. Use knowledge of suppliers in creating strategy

  • Also, DVBEs are well organized—great networking opportunity

  • Use DVBEs as resources to find and develop other DVBEs


Use the laws l.jpg
Use the Laws

  • Everyone is familiar with 5% SB preference

  • SB115 adds a DVBE incentive of 15% up to $100,000

  • It may be possible to make 3% DVBE participation mandatory

  • It may be possible to set participation goal higher than 3% and mandatory


Strategy l.jpg
Strategy

  • Need to create a procurement strategy

  • Where will DVBE participation come from?

  • Construction?

  • Commodities?

  • Services?

  • In what percentages?


Continuous improvement l.jpg
Continuous Improvement

  • Look at strategy. Is it working?

  • Did you make goal?

  • Where did you succeed? Why?

  • Where did you miss? Why?

  • What adjustments are needed?

  • Review periodically and when starting new year

Public works l.jpg
Public Works

  • Public works is critical to DVBE results:

  • 1) Large Contracts without DVBE destroys any chances of meeting goals

  • 2) Large Contracts with excess DVBE can make your year

  • 3) Meet DVBE requirements on contract

    Must ensure meet either 2 or 3

  • Invite DVBEs to Job Walk; contact them personally—don’t trust the mail to convey you interest

  • Where to find them:

  • 1) Log of DVBEs from previous bids (DVBEs who have bid or are subs on bids—look at winners and losers)

  • 2) Review DGS for potential DVBEs
