The San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District invites you to attend an outreach meeting and learn about a number of initiatives that BART has developed to assist small businesses that are seeking to work on BART contracts. BART continues to look for opportunities to assist small businesses, including minority and women owned businesses. BART’s new Small Business Programs for federal and non-federally funded contracts address and mitigates the difficulties many small businesses encounter when competing against larger more established businesses.

These programs are expected to generate jobs, provide economic opportunity, and boost economic output throughout California and, in particular, in the counties where BART operates and does business – City and County of San Francisco, Alameda County, Contra Costa County, and San Mateo County.

The BART Board of Directors recently endorsed a plan that outlines a number of bold initiatives, which will further enhance the participation of small, minority and women owned businesses on BART contracts. These initiatives include:

    • New guidelines to identify opportunities to un-bundle contracts for Small Businesses.
    • Implementation of a District-wide bonding assistance program and a pre and post bid technical support program to support Small Businesses.

We invite you to attend the meeting to learn more about these Small Business Programs. At this meeting you will have the opportunity to speak directly with BART staff and share any concerns or provide additional information you feel may help these  initiatives to succeed.

More information is available in the attached flyer. If you need language assistance services, please call (510) 464-6752, 72 hours prior to the date of the meeting.
