Los Angeles County

Contracting Connections Program

CERTIFY. CONNECT. GROW

Los Angeles County’s Contracting Connections is a new program to help small businesses compete for County contracts. The County’s goal over the next four years is for 25 percent of eligible contracts to go to certified local small businesses and three percent to disabled veteran-owned businesses. There’s about $1 billion of County contracts for goods and services available to small businesses. Los Angeles County has also worked to improve the certification process, and designated small business advocates in each County department to help businesses bid on contracts. The County also created a new Social Enterprise certification to assist businesses with a mission of serving the community.
