CBE Resources

This page is under construction and will be updated with resources for the Certified Business Enterprise (CBE) community.

The Department of General Services (DGS) has established a new Certified Business Enterprise (CBE) Inclusion Office to help take DGS’ CBE program to the next level and build a best practice, comprehensive CBE program. The CBE Inclusion Office partners with Contracting & Procurement and all DGS divisions to create and increase meaningful CBE opportunities across the agency.

The CBE Inclusion Office is developing outreach and feedback channels to increase CBE understanding of how to do business with DGS.

The new office also serves as the DGS CBE Ombudsman  to address contractor and subcontractor complaints and concerns and identify systemic concerns to recommend procurement process or policy changes.

The CBE Inclusion Office monitors contractor compliance with First Source, Apprenticeship, Davis-Bacon, and CBE/SBE requirements and is establishing a robust compliance program.

DGS has established these programs to assure that contract expenditures help District-based businesses, residents, and communities flourish as a natural outgrowth of economic investment.
