Firms owned by minorities, women, disabled veterans, persons with disabilities, and LGBT people can gain better access to contracts with the California Public Utilities Commission if they are certified through its Supplier Diversity program. Once certified, a firm is added to the Supplier Clearinghouse, which is used by California's utility companies to meet their goals. The CPUC only certifies firms as an MBE, WBE, disability-owned, or LGBTBE. The commission automatically recognizes DVBEs certified by the state's Department of General Services but does not issue DVBE certification.
