Good Faith Efforts

Construction Bid Source (CBS) has been performing Good Faith Efforts (GFE's) for general contractors since 1994. Sanctioned by the State of California as a Trade and Focus publication, we have assisted hundreds of companies with fulfilling their GFE requirements in California, Nevada and Arizona. We do it right every time. So, if you are overwhelmed by the whole GFE process or simply just too busy to get it done properly, let CBS help you.

What We Do For You
  • Make initial phone call to owner for information and referrals
  • Place an advertisement in our online Trade and Focus publication
  • Make phone calls to other certifying agencies for DBE referrals
  • Research in-house and on-line databases for DBE's
  • Compile a Master List of DBE firms
  • Email or Fax solicitations to selected DBE's
  • Make solicitation follow up phone calls when requested
  • Document call results on the Master List
  • Email or fax all documentation to you for inclusion in your bid package
  • Assistance with your bid package documentation if requested
What We Need From You
  • DBE documentation from your contract - plus trades you are requesting
  • Project name, bid date, owner name and owner contact information
  • Where potential bidders can obtain plans and specs
  • Your company name, address, phone, fax, email and contact person

And that's all you have to do. No more spending hours searching the internet for DBE lists, no more sending out hundreds of faxes and emails, no more hours spent making follow up calls - we can do it all, leaving you the time to do what you do best - prepare that winning bid!
