Construction Bench Program
MCTC is looking for local certified Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) and Small Business (SB) firms and suppliers to enroll in their Construction Bench Program, which will provide enrolled firms with preferential subcontract opportunities on the Mid-Coast Corridor Transit Project. MCTC seeks to include a variety of services from DBE and SB firms. The Construction Bench will serve as a shortlist of contract-ready firms from which MCTC will be able to expeditiously seek bids and put DBE/SB firms to work in order to meet the ongoing needs of the project.
About the Project
The Mid-Coast Corridor Transit Project will extend Trolley service from downtown San Diego to University City, expanding transportation capacity and reducing congestion.
To be considered for the Construction Bench Program, firms must be certified as either a DBE by the California Unified Certification Program (CUCP) or SB by the California Department of General Services (DGS). Candidate firms will also need:
- A current California Department of Industrial Relations number
- Quality Safety Records
- A California Contractor’s License
- Applicable NAICS codes
MCTC will offer DBE firms assistance with bonding, insurance and financing. MCTC will be releasing Construction Bench opportunities throughout the project, and will apply deadlines for questionnaire submission prior to their release.
