Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise (DVBE)

Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise Program

The Superior Court of Kern County (Court) recognizes the vital importance and impact that the Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise (DVBE) community has on California's local, regional and statewide economies. For this reason, the Court has designed a program to enhance opportunities for DVBEs.

DVBE Advocate

The Court has appointed a DVBE Advocate to assist DVBEs with questions or concerns. The DVBE Advocate helps identify potential DVBE contracting opportunities, and helps make information regarding pending solicitations available to certified DVBEs.

DVBE Certification Process

The Office of Small Business and DVBE Services (OSDS) is responsible for the DVBE certification process and will assist you with any questions or concerns about the process.

The DVBE certification and eligibility requirements are available on:

OSDS website

DVBE Certification Benefits

The Court may provide an incentive to bidders and proposers that are certified DVBEs, or who commit to subcontract with certified DVBEs. By becoming a certified DVBE, you will become eligible to receive this incentive if offered, and to partner with prime contractors who wish to receive this incentive.
