Calvac Paving is Officially Certified as a Woman-Owned Small Business


Since the day it opened its doors in 1974, Calvac Paving has earned a well-deserved reputation for its outstanding full-service asphalt and concrete maintenance services. 

Now, Calvac Paving can announce that it has been certified as a Woman-Owned Small Business by both the federal and state governments.

“I know that in California, as well as nationally, most businesses needing our services also have quotas they need to fill with regards to bidding and contracting with small businesses. This is just another service Calvac Paving can offer its customers,”  Tami said.

The process to become certified as a Woman-Owned Small Business was both arduous and highly detailed. “There are strict regulations and guidelines you must follow to become certified, and I am proud that Calvac was able to achieve this status,” Tami said.  “I believe this is a welcomed accomplishment in our industry as well for our clients”.

While Tami said the recent certification is not the focus for Calvac Paving’s visibility and growth—the company’s outstanding reputation for almost 50 years speaks for itself, she said—she is excited to learn from other woman-owned small businesses.

“I am always looking for new ways to better myself and Calvac and now have the opportunity to learn from other SBAs. I am also excited to learn through continuous seminars/meetings/conferences now available as a WOSB.  In turn, we can offer to others the opportunity to learn from Calvac’s extensive experience. What I like most about being certified? So far, it’s the networking and support I have experienced and I look forward to continuing to cultivate relationships in this industry”.  


About the Women-Owned Small Business Federal Contract Program:

 According to the U.S. Small Business Administration website, the Women-Owned Small Business Federal Contract Program (WOSB program) is to help provide a level playing field for women business owners. The federal government limits competition for certain contracts to businesses that participate in the WOSB Program. These contracts are specific industries where WOSBs are underrepresented. SBA maintains a list of those eligible industries and their NAICS codes. Getting certified as a WOSB Federal Contract Program participant makes a business eligible to compete for federal contracts set aside for the program. To be eligible for the WOSB Federal Contract program, a business must at a minimum:

  • Be a small business according to SBA size standards
  • Be at least 51% owned and controlled by women who are U.S. citizens
  • Have women manage day-to-day operations who also make long-term decisions
