SACRAMENTO — The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) and the Department of General Services (DGS), State Senator Lois Wolk, Assemblymember Mariko Yamada and local agencies have partnered to develop a series of workshops throughout California to help Small Businesses (SB), Disabled Veteran Business Enterprises (DVBE), and non-profit agencies learn about local government contracting opportunities. By attending this workshop, SB/DVBE businesses will receive resources for state licensing and certification, receive information about how to compete for state and other local county purchases or contracts, participate in a panel session to ask questions about economic development, learn how to compete for future business opportunities. The event will include networking opportunities with local government and public agencies.
Businesses in the northern California region are invited to attend the Small Business Certification Workshop in Sacramento on September 7. Details for the event are as follows:
