Effective January 2019, the Office of Small Business and DVBE Services (OSDS) will also administer the new Small Business for the purpose of Public Works (SB-PW) certification. The new certification type was created by Senate Bill 605 (Chapter 673, Statute of 2017), passed in October 2017. This certification type is solely for the purpose of Public Works contracts and/or projects. SB-PW expands the opportunities for small businesses to compete in the public works arena.
