• Business and Community Outreach

    The CPUC's Business and Community Outreach program focuses on outreach to stakeholders, the Supplier Diversity Program, and the Small Business Program. The program helps to raise awareness of the CPUC's efforts to ensure utility service at reasonable rates, protect against fraud, and promote the health of California's economy.

    • Outreach efforts focus on engaging and educating about the CPUC's programs, proceedings, decisions, and initiatives.
    • The Supplier Diversity program promotes and monitors supplier diversity in procurement by utilities and oversees a certification clearinghouse. The CPUC encourages investor-owned utilities to purchase 21.5 percent of its goods and services from diverse firms (15 percent minority-owned, 5 percent women-owned and 1.5 percent disabled veteran-owned firms) including lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT)-owned firms.
    • The Small Business program focuses on two areas: 1) Promoting procurement opportunities with the state and utilities; 2) Providing education and outreach necessary to raise internal and external awareness of various regulatory and legislative policy issues impacting the small business community. The CPUC also assists small businesses with utility related complaints issues and informs small businesses of CPUC contracting opportunities.
