File Consolidated Annual Report for State Contracting
State Departments are required to award 25 percent of their annual contracting dollars to certified Small Businesses (SB) and 3 percent to certified Disabled Veteran Business Enterprises (DVBE). Public Contract Code 10111 requires your department to report annually, the SB/DVBE participation on all of its state contracts, purchase orders and Cal-Card purchases, to ensure that the participation goals are met. This report is known as the Consolidated Activity Report (CAR) or Form 810.
State agencies, departments, boards, commissions and other entities that must submit a Consolidated Annual Report (DGS PD 810) to the Department of General Services must do so by August 1.
To submit a CAR, use the following instructions.
