The Savannah Business Opportunity (SBO) program is a new City program aimed at increasing utilization of local small businesses in all areas of City procurement. The SBO program helps spur local economic growth and allows small firms to compete at the prime contractor level.
Businesses that meet required revenue and employee thresholds are eligible for certification as Savannah Business Enterprises (SBEs), allowing them to participate in sheltered City contracts. Additionally, the City has established cumulative annual participation goals to increase subcontracting opportunities for Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBEs) certified at the state and federal level.
For more information and assistance, please contact the SBO Program Office at (912) 652-3582 or email.
