UC Berkeley sheltered bidding/sheltered applicant pool for small business enterprise (SBE)/disabled veteran business enterprise (DVBE)

The President of the University and Regents have set a goal of 25% SBE/DVBE participation for Design and Construction contract spend by 2025. Sheltered Bidding/Sheltered Applicant Pool is a program whereby a portion of contracts are designated, before solicitation of qualifications or proposals, for submission from Small Business Enterprises (SBE) and/or Disabled Veteran Business Enterprises (DVBE). The goal of sheltered selection is to provide greater opportunities for such business enterprises in UC capital programs.

It is intended for use on recurring construction work for specific trades with specific construction values. It is governed by the provisions of the Public Contract Code.
