In response to Assembly Bill 3678, the Commission issued
General Order 156 (GO 156), which outlined program guidelines to promote utility recruitment and use of women and minority-owned business enterprises. GO 156 also required participating utilities to establish a joint clearinghouse. Procurement goals of 5% for women and 15% for minorities were initially established, and later augmented with a 1.5% goal for disabled veteran enterprises.
