change have to get
Change “have” to “get”
  • This is an opportunity
  • Win-Win: CSU meets goals; Suppliers are developed
outreach
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
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
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
Strategy
  • Need to create a procurement strategy
  • Where will DVBE participation come from?
  • Construction?
  • Commodities?
  • Services?
  • In what percentages?
continuous improvement
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

  • 1) Large Contracts without DVBE destroys any chances of meeting goals
  • 2) Large Contracts with excess DVBE can make your year
