Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

  1. If our office is located in Downtown Los Angeles, do we qualify as a Local Business Enterprise (LBE)? 

A Local Business Enterprise (LBE) is defined as a vendor, contractor, or consultant who has a valid physical business address and an established place of business: (1) located within five miles of the District’s service boundary or (2) located within a city that is situated within five miles of the District’s service boundary. The District may give preference in the evaluation of proposals to proposers based on the extent of participation demonstrated through compliance with LBE, SBE, and VBE participation. For purposes of the evaluation, the District may provide preference of up to 5% of the total evaluation points to the vendor, contractor, or consultant with at least 20% participations of LBE or at least 20% participations of SBE/VBE.

  1. In addition to the preference given for LBE, SBE (Small Business Enterprise), and/or VBE (Veteran Business Enterprise). Is an MBE (Minority Business Enterprise) considered as part of the evaluation?

No, if a firm is an MBE, but not an LBE, SBE, and/or VBE, the firm will not be considered for the 5% of the total evaluation points.
