DGS Small Business Option


The DGS Small Business Option allows State of California agencies and departments to directly hire DGS-certified small businesses for a variety of services, including all services offered by Mission Consulting. This streamlined procurement process is the SB/DVBE Option. It involves contracting directly with a DGS-certified small business (SB) or disabled Veterans Business Enterprise (DVBE) without a need to advertise. Mission Consulting is a DGS certified Small and Micro Business, registration #13735.

Contracted consulting services must be valued between $5,000.01 and $249,999.99 after obtaining offers from at least two DGS-certified small businesses. Offers can be requested and received over the phone, via fax or email, or through a more formal RFQ or RFO process. Evaluation can be based on best value, and not lowest price. Non-IT consulting service contracts of $50,000 or more must be approved by DGS/OLS. IT or telecommunications consulting contracts up to $249,999 can be issued by the department using a STD 65 without DGS approval per the department’s delegated authority.
