McMurray Stern Receives WBE Certification from CPUC
SANTA FE SPRINGS, CA—August 8, 2014—McMurray Stern, Southern California’s leader in innovative storage development and records management solutions, announced today that it was certified as a Women-Owned Business Enterprise (WBE) by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC).
The CPUC regulates privately owned public utilities and ensures reliable service at reasonable rates. The Supplier Clearinghouse, an entity of CPUC, audits and verifies the eligibility of WBEs for certification. McMurray Stern received certification under General Order 156, a voluntary procurement program that encourages investor-owned electric, gas, water and telecommunication utility companies to create programs that promote working with WBEs.
Under this new designation, McMurray Stern will be included in CPUC’s centralized supplier database, a great avenue to grow its public utilities business in Los Angeles, Orange County, Tri-County and Inland Empire. The increased visibility opens up opportunities to work with companies that are a part of the Supplier Diversity Program. Participating utilities firms select from a certified suppliers list to meet procurement goals of 5% for women, 15% for minorities and 1.5% for service-disabled veterans.
As an approved WBE, McMurray Stern receives access to bid announcements sooner and will be able to manage a faster, more efficient contracting process.
