Valley Bow is proud to announce we are an approved Small Business Enterprise (SBE) with The Network, by passing our evaluation of the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes. This certification is recognized by the following agencies:
- The Port of Long Beach*
- San Diego County Water Authority*
* There are currently six agencies participating in The Network; however, at the present time, only the Port of Long Beach and San Diego County Water Authority are administering a Small Business Enterprise (SBE) Program.
The SBE/VSBE Program was established in October 2004, via an SBE Ordinance by the Board of Harbor Commissioners. The program was designed to ensure that small businesses have the opportunity to successfully participate in the Port’s contracts and procurements.
The Port of Long Beach's Small Business Enterprises (SBE)/Very Small Business Enterprises (VSBE) Program was designed to put more Port dollars into the hands of small and very small businesses, through prime contracting, subcontracting, consulting, and procurement opportunities.
The Port of Long Beach is one of the world's busiest seaports, a leading gateway for trade between the United States and Asia. It supports over a million jobs nationally and generates billions of dollars in economic activity each year.
