Low bidder denied project after listed DVBE subcontractor found lacking a "commercially useful function"

General contractor C.C. Meyers, Inc. was awarded a Caltrans project to improve a highway in Glendale. Meyers was given a credit in its bid for listing a Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise ("DVBE"), Sam's Equipment and Supplies ("Sam's"). Sam's was to furnish concrete base material. Without the credit, Meyers would not have been the low bidder.

SB 293 was approved by the California legislators and is headed to the Governor

As noted in our SB 474 posting, at least two construction-related laws were approved by California legislators at the end of the 2011 legislative session: SB 474 and SB 293. This post discusses SB 293. Both bills are now headed to the governor's desk for his signature or veto.
