SB/DVBE Emergency Registry: NOW LIVE!

We are excited to announce the SB/DVBE Emergency Registry is now live. This is a dedicated portal for SBs and DVBEs to register as suppliers of emergency goods and services.

Unlike Cal eProcure, this portal is limited to certified SB/DVBE businesses that are ready and able to provide the state goods and services contained in the emergency categories listed below during emergencies. State department buyers will be able to access and search this pool of suppliers during state emergencies.

Should you sign up?

Only SB/DVBE businesses with an active certification who are currently ready and able to support the state of California in an emergency should register.

Emergency contracting requires fast, around-the-clock turnaround times - a business should not register unless they are fully capable of immediately providing the goods and/or services they list during registration.

How does a qualified certified business register?

Qualified SB/DVBE certified businesses must register their company through the DGS Shared Services Portal which houses the SB/DVBE Emergency Registry. Certified businesses will be able to

clearly define which goods and services they can offer to the state around-the-clock during an emergency. Certified businesses who register acknowledge that they are currently able and ready to respond to emergency requests.
