Business Advisory Council
The California High-Speed Rail Authority is continually seeking new and innovative approaches to improve its policies and procedures to eliminate any barriers and increase small business utilization. Thus, the Board of Directors approved the formation of a Business Advisory Council (Council) on April 19, 2012. The Council is representative of statewide construction and professional services business trade associations that serve as a forum to provide essential input and advisement to the Authority in implementing practices that effect and/or impact the small business community.
The Mission of the California High-Speed Rail Authority (Authority) Business Advisory Council (Council) is to cultivate a partnership between the Authority and its Small Business and contracting community. The Council will serve as a forum to provide essential input and advisement to the Authority in implementing its policies and practices that affect and/or impact Small Business utilization and participation in all the Authority‘s contracting programs. The collaboration and insight will serve to advance the Authority‘s success in meeting its 30% Small Business Goal on this historic infrastructure project.
