Trend and Analysis
The SDDD is on target to increase the number of businesses certified. County Council legislation, Jobs and Opportunity Act of 2016 and the pending legislation, CB115, are designed to increase the number of CBMBE and CBSB suppliers who register and become certified. SDDD plans to make inroads under its advocacy, outreach, and education and training initiatives. Recruitment activity will increase along with stakeholder partner meetings. The application process will be reviewed periodically to ensure efficiency, including but not limited to streamlining the overall process.
