San Diego Unified is committed to ensuring that emerging, small and underutilized construction-related businesses have viable opportunities to participate in all Propositions S/Z and Measure YY construction projects. To ensure small, minority-, women- and disabled veteran-owned companies are aware of these contracting opportunities, the district conducts the following:

  • Maintains a database of small, minority-, women- and disabled veteran-owned businesses expressing interest in contracting with the San Diego Unified.
  • Notifies small, minority-, women- and disabled veteran-owned businesses and organizations of construction bidding opportunities via email, social networks and other media.
  • Promotes contracting opportunities at many public outreach and procurement events, including those hosted by the Public Agency Consortium (PAC).
  • Issues the Business Outreach Newsletter regularly to provide construction bond program updates, contracting information,upcoming bid opportunities, procurement news, and more.
  • Provides subcontractors with tools to network with general contractors, such as planholder lists and pre-bid site walk attendance sheets.
  • Informs contractors and Disabled Veteran Businesses (DVB) about San Diego Unified’s 3-percent DVB participation requirement. Read the DVB Tip Sheet to learn more about it!

  • Develops additional strategies based on stakeholder feedback on how to better serve emerging, small and underutilized businesses.
