Webinar: Certify and Amplify Virtual Workshop
Date/Time: Tuesday June 14, 2022 12:00pm – 1:30 pm PST
Description: We’re excited to invite our small or diverse business owners to MCE’s 4th Annual Certify & Amplify Workshop to help you certify in the California Public Utilities Commission’s (CPUC) Supplier Diversity program and amplify your business opportunities throughout the state. This year we’ll also have a speaker focusing specifically on how to get certified as a small business.
General Order (GO) 156 – commonly referred to as “Supplier Diversity” – is a statewide program that encourages utilities to prioritize contracts and subcontracts from businesses that meet diversity qualifications. To qualify, businesses must be 51% woman-owned, minority-owned, LGBTQ-owned, or disabled veteran-owned enterprises. After being certified as a diverse supplier, qualified businesses are listed in the CPUC’s Clearinghouse, which utilities can then access for their contracting needs and to meet their contracting quotas.
