Small Business and Employment Assistance

Overview

The SFMTA is committed to providing a level playing field in contracting and employment opportunities on the Central Subway Project. The SFMTA’s Contract Compliance Office (CCO) establishes small-business participation goals on Central Subway contracts, evaluates bids and specifications to identify potential barriers to small-business participation, and monitors contracts to ensure that contractors meet their commitments to utilizing small businesses. CCO makes bonding, financial and other technical assistance resources available to small-business contractors intending to participate and currently involved in the Central Subway Project.

CCO also oversees prime contractors' efforts to employ economically disadvantaged individuals; monitors certified payroll; and conducts site visits to ensure that contractors meet goals for employing minorities and women, paying prevailing wages and complying with all federal, state and local employment requirements.

Prompt Payment

CCO actively monitors payments made by prime contractors to ensure that subcontractors are paid in accordance with federal rules and regulations. Prime contractors are required to pay subcontractors within three (3) business days of receipt of payment from the SFMTA. If you are a subcontractor currently performing work on a Central Subway contract, you may visit this webpage to see when payment has been released to the prime contractor. Should you have any issues with prompt payment, please contact Lome Aseron at 415-701-5332 or lome.aseron@sfmta.com.
