Small Business Certification

The California High-Speed Rail Authority (Authority) is committed to small businesses playing a major role in building the statewide high-speed rail project. The Small Business Program (SBP) has an aggressive 30 percent goal for small business participation including Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE), Disabled Veteran Business Enterprises (DVBE) and Micro-Businesses (MB).

Only certified small businesses as recognized by the Authority and are eligible to be credited towards the Authority’s overall 30 percent participation goal.

While the Authority is not a small business certifying agency, the Authority recognizes the small business certifications from the Department of General Services, the California Unified Certification Program, and the Small Business Administration.
