Through a collaborative effort of a small group of disabled veteran CEO’s and Co-sponsored by Chairwoman Michelle Steel and Vice Chairman Andrew Do, the Orange County Board of Supervisors passed the OC Disabled Veterans Business Enterprise (DVBE) Preference Policy. While a statewide DVBE program already exists in California, this creates further incentives at the local level.
The DVBE Preference Policy will provide a five percent incentive, similar to the Local Small Business Preference Policy. For DVBEs’ that are certified as OC Local Small Businesses there will be an eight percent preference toward promoting disabled veteran participation in County contracts.
Chairwoman Steel added: “I want to thank the disabled veteran business owners who worked together with my office and County staff to put this program together”. She emphasized that the County’s DVBE program is a form of gratitude to our disabled veteran business owners.
