Small Business (SB)/Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise Program (DVBE)


Welcome to the Department of Rehabilitation SB/DVBE Program Page.

We hope you find the website both informative and useful. DOR recognizes this commitment enhances California's local economy and also enriches our experience as a result of doing business with a wide range of vendors. The foundation of our program consists of internal and external deliverables to help ensure program success for all DOR's stakeholders. To enhance SB DVBE program opportunities the Department has developed an interactive program for prime and small, micro and DVBE businesses alike. DOR strives to achieve both small and DVBE business program mandates through continued training, education, and outreach programs within DOR and in the prime and small and DVBE business communities.
