CalVet SB/DVBE Opportunties

Thank you for your interest in the California Department of Veterans Affairs (CalVet). We look forward to increasing the number of opportunities you have to provide us with the goods and services we need. We are a statewide organization with 8 Veterans Homes located in Barstow, Chula Vista, Ventura, Lancaster, West Los Angeles, Fresno, Redding and Yountville. 

The CalVet is extremely supportive of Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise (DVBE) and actively seeks partnerships with them. The procurement staff at CalVet is ready to assist you in successfully participating in the State's procurement process.

Commercially Useful Function

Under Government Code and Military and Veterans Code, California certified SB and DVBE doing business with the state must perform a Commercially Useful Function (CUF). Late in 2015, documents were developed to assist with the evaluation of CUF:

  • Sample CUF Departmental Policy

  • FAQs regarding CUF

  • CUF Evaluation and Determination Worksheet

  • DVBE Program Requirements for Goods and Information Technology

These documents are available on the Commercially Useful Function webpage at: https://www.dgs.ca.gov
