Small Business Enterprise
OCII implements a Small Business Enterprise (SBE) Program with an overall SBE goal of 50% on agency assisted contracts. “Small Business Enterprise (SBE)” means an economically disadvantaged business that: is an independent and continuing business for profit; performs a commercially useful function; is owned and controlled by persons residing in the United States or its territories; has average gross annual receipts in the three years immediately preceding its application for certification as a SBE that do not exceed the following limits:
|Specialty Construction Contractors||
|Suppliers (goods/materials/equipment and general services)||
OCII no longer certifies small businesses but accepts other governmental certifications of SBEs. Please refer to the Successor Agency's New Procedure for Certifying SBE for additional information.
Effective July 7, 2015, OCII amended its Small Business Enterprise (SBE) Policy to accept the City and County of San Francisco's micro and small Local Business Enterprise certifications and added clarifying language to joint ventures and associations.

Since July 1, 1998, firms seeking contracts or purchase orders that exceed $5,000 have been obligated to comply with the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency’s Nondiscrimination in Contracts and Equal Benefits Policy. OCII continues to enforce this policy. The Policy is based upon the City and County of San Francisco’s Nondiscrimination in Contracts: Equal Benefits Ordinance.

Bayview Hunters Point (BVHP) Employment and Contracting Policy
In adopting the BVHP Redevelopment Plan, the former San Francisco Redevelopment Agency (now OCII) and the City and County of San Francisco have made a commitment to vigorous equal opportunity and diversity in employment. The BVHP Employment and Contracting Policy is designed to ensure that Agency Action Projects and private Significant Projects (which do not receive OCII assistance), provide employment opportunities for lower-income BVHP residents and San Francisco residents in the areas of construction, professional services, and permanent jobs. This Policy has also been adopted for projects in Hunters Point Shipyard and Candlestick Point.
