Finding and Choosing a DBE & WBE Certified Company

Why Choose a DBE & WBE Certified Company for Your Print Solutions?

When it comes to finding services online, there are so many options and it can be overwhelming. The same can be said for finding quality print solutions. SABP Print Solutions is the oldest and one of the few remaining privately owned and operated WBE & DBE Certified Reprographics Companies in Orange County. This year we are celebrating 75 years of service in Orange County. We know firsthand just how important it is to choose a DBE or WBE company in the sea of competitors that you will find online, as it helps disadvantaged businesses like ours to continue helping you with all of your print solutions: it helps us to help you!

What Does DBE & WBE Stand For?

DBE stands for Disadvantaged Business Enterprise. WBE stands for Woman-owned Business Enterprise. These are programs that are created by various government agencies, providing more opportunities contractually for disadvantaged people. What this means is that certain industries and agencies are encouraged to meet DBE goals and utilize the services of DBE certified companies. This ensures that those businesses are getting their fair share of opportunities, paving the way for a more even playing field for all companies.

While SABP Print Solutions is both DBE and WBE certified, there are other similar certifications that also exist for Minority Business Enterprises (MBE) and Person with Disabilities Business Enterprises (PBE). According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, “African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, Asian-Pacific and Subcontinent Asian Americans, and women are presumed to be socially and economically disadvantaged.  Other individuals can also qualify as socially and economically disadvantaged on a case-by-case basis.”

Why is it Important to Choose these Companies?

Not only does working with a DBE or WBE certified company help benefit a disadvantaged group of hard-working people, but many projects have specific diversity goals based on the nature of the project. Engineering firms, construction companies, different federally owned departments such as the Department of Transportation have goals for their projects specifically for DBE.

Additionally, most airway, roadway, water, and healthcare projects are state and federally funded and subsequently many have up to 16% DBE and Small Business goals where they must make a “good faith effort” to utilize the services of DBE businesses.

Even if there are diversity goals to meet to use these businesses, it is by no means a disadvantage for your project. DBE’s often boast great track records for their work because due to the nature of their programs being taxpayer-funded they are often more closely scrutinized under the public eye. Working with these businesses to meet or exceed DBE goals can even give your business an advantage when you are seeking out other government funded projects.
