CATS is proud to provide opportunities for businesses to create local jobs through the advancement of transit projects. CATS also seeks to create an environment that gives small and socially or economically challenged local businesses the opportunity to compete for publicly funded contracts by participating in the Small Business Enterprise (SBE) and the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) programs.
We recently conducted a symposium that covered:
What are CATS future business opportunities?
Navigating the Federal Regulations
Am I a SBE or DBE? How do I become a SBE or DBE?
Getting the Business: Bidding, Contracting and other Hoops I have to go through!
Meet and Greet for Prime and Sub-Contractors
