Small Business Council

PREAMBLE

The purpose of the Caltrans Small Business Council is to encourage the participation of small businesses with Caltrans and to provide a forum for small business trade associations to comment and provide feedback on Caltrans policies and practices that affect or impact small business utilization and participation in Caltrans contracts and projects.

Caltrans uses external advisory committees to develop solutions to the State’s transportation problems, to disseminate information regarding specific Caltrans projects and programs, and to provide a forum for interactive discussions with interested parties.  External advisory committees do not adopt policies that conflict with Caltrans’ policies or that could be construed as representing Caltrans’ policies.
