The SCA's Mentor Program provides qualified and certified MWLBEs with training and opportunities to work on SCA projects.
For firms that do not qualify for the Mentor Program, the SCA makes other provisions to encourage MWLBE participation on its contracts. For its construction projects, the SCA stipulates that contractors demonstrate a good faith effort to subcontract 20 percent of the work to an MWBE firms and 10 percent to LBEs. On personal services contracts, one of the evaluation criteria is the extent to which a consultant firm uses MWLBEs, either as subconsultants or as joint venture (JV) partners. Firms not engaged in construction are not eligible for LBE certification.
