CMD Business Development Program

Doing business with any government agency requires a specialized set of skills, knowledge and capacity. San Francisco's Contract Monitoring Division recognizes that there are unique and distinct barriers to accessing San Francisco contracting opportunities for Local Business Enterprises (LBE's).

The Business Development Program is designed to provide local, certified local businesses with technical assistance to enhance their ability to compete for City contracts. This yearlong pilot project consists of twenty certified Local Business Enterprises. Each member of the class learns how to develop their skills, access the experts, and increase their capacity. They take an active role by using their own businesses as a case study and creating a strategic growth plan with milestones to help them stay focused on their goals of winning City’s contracts. We offer monthly programs with different City Agencies for the class to have access to the experts, learn best practices and network.

The Micro-LBE Town Hall meeting is hosted by the San Francisco Department of Public Works (DPW). The San Francisco Contract Monitoring Division strongly encourages all micro-LBEs interested in doing business with the City to attend this FREE workshop. DPW has been a major partner with CMD in setting aside project for which only micro-LBEs can compete on.

Please note that there will be an overview of how to fill out bid packages as well as information on available resources (i.e. LBE Surety Bonding and Financial Assistance program) to position yourself to perform the work. This event is especially critical for those contractors that traditionally bid a subcontractors.

DPW is also inviting the prime contractor for the upcoming Moscone Expansion Project, and they will have information on potential opportunities for micro-LBE subcontractors.
