To ensure that transactions reflect the State's priorities regarding businesses owned by disabled veterans, and to comply with requirements in the judicial contracting manual, the courts we reviewed should develop formal policies to implement the DVBE program.
On March 22, 2013, the Napa Superior Court updated its Local Contracting Manual (LCM). The revised LCM includes a new Section 6 - California Disabled Veterans Business Enterprise (DVBE) Program, and Section 7 - Shared Procurement Services.
The LCM manual includes new procedures that address our DVBE recommendation.
Agency responses received after June 2013 are posted verbatim.
