Participation Goals

For minority, women, and disabled veterans business enterprises (M/W/DVBE) on all contracts awarded by a district based upon the State-wide levels. Participation goals are set at fifteen percent (15%) for minority business enterprises, ten percent (10%) for women business enterprises and three percent (3%) for disabled veterans business enterprises. This statutory requirement is implemented by regulations promulgated in California Code of Regulations, Title 5, and Section 59500-59509. Neither the statute nor the regulations impose an absolute requirement that contracts awarded by a district meet the M/W/DVBE participation goals. The statute, regulations and applicable law prohibit the application of strict numerical set asides unless there has been a prior factual finding of discriminatory practices. Accordingly, the failure of a bidder to have met the participation goals will not by itself render the bidder non-responsive so long as there is a show of good faith efforts by the bidder to meet the participation goals.
