On-Call Procurement Bench Website Introduction

Welcome to the SANDAG "Bench" of small business firms. The Bench was developed to create opportunities for small and disadvantaged businesses to participate in SANDAG On-Call contracts. Small Business (SB) and Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) firms are invited to join the Bench to participate in these efforts.

The Bench is composed of firms that are certified as a SB by the California Department of General Services (DGS) or a DBE certified by the California Unified Certification Program (CUCP). The Bench is open to SB and DBE firms that provide a variety of Architecture and Engineering (A&E) and Construction Management (CM) professional services that serve as a pool of certified firms that Prime consultants will be able to access for work on SANDAG projects.

SANDAG encourages the use of Bench firms when developing a consultant team to work on SANDAG projects. The Bench program increases small and disadvantaged business opportunities, promotes and fosters diversity, and acts as a conduit for creating partnerships between large and small firms.
