Jaime Partners has recently received their Disadvantaged Business Enterprise certification which will create more opportunity for them as well as their future clients. The State of California Certified DBE firms receive increased visibility through inclusion in the California Unified Certification Program (UCP) database of businesses. The database is used as a resource by City buyers, department personnel, prime contractors and other agencies and organizations throughout the state. A certification is valid for three years and recognized throughout the state of California.
The main objectives of the DBE are to: 1) Ensure that small DBE firms can compete fairly for federally funded transportation related projects. 2) Ensure that only eligible firms participate as a DBE firm. 3) Assist DBE firms in competing outside of the DBE Program.
