Small Business Advocates Program


Supporting small businesses is important to us – especially when disabled veteran business enterprises (DVBE) are involved. If you have a small business or a DVBE that would like to do business with DMV, our Small Business Advocacy Program can help.

About the Program

Small business advocates help small businesses and DVBEs connect with the DMV to fulfill demand for various products and services. Advocates make sure that both procurement and contracting needs are fulfilled through a certified small business or DVBE before contacting other resources.

DMV’s Small Business/DVBE Advocacy Program can help with things like:

  • Receiving and responding to complaints from small businesses.
  • Offering technical advice, answering questions about our partnership and helping to resolve problems related to the program.
  • Reporting small business concerns and recommendations to the director.
  • Promoting state contracts and other business opportunities with small businesses/DVBEs.
  • Informing small businesses/DVBEs about the rules and regulations that might affect them.

Contact the Small Business Advocate Program to discuss working with us.
