Bench Programs

SANDAG’s Bench Program was developed to create more opportunities for small and disadvantaged businesses to participate in SANDAG’s On-Call Contracts, promote and foster diversity, and act as a conduit for creating partnerships between large and small firms. The Bench is a pool of certified Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) and Small Business (SB) firms that Prime Consultants can access for work on SANDAG Architecture and Engineering (A&E), Construction Management (CM), and Planning On-Call Contracts. SANDAG encourages Prime Consultants to use Bench firms when developing a consultant team to work on SANDAG projects to meet DBE and Small Business goals.
