Small Business First Waiver

Learn about the process and requirements for requesting a Small Business First Waiver for non-Federally funded purchases ≥$10,000 and ≤$250,000.

Small Business First Summary:

UC Policy BUS-43 requires that all non-construction and non-federally funded purchases valued between ≥$10,000 and ≤$250,000 annually (excluding tax but including shipping) that cannot be procured via existing strategically sourced agreements, the University must first seek to award the purchase to a certified Small Business (SB) or Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise (DVBE). This is known as the Small Business First (SB1st) program


When to request a Waiver:  

Instances where the SB1st program may not be feasible, or when contracting with businesses other than a certified SB or DVBE is justified may include, but are not limited to: 

  • Industries where at least two (2) SBs or two (2) DVBEs are not available 
  • Business needs dictate requirements that cannot be met by an SB or DVBE. 

A Waiver should be used when the requesting party must make an award to a non-SB or DVBE where an award to an SB/DVBE would otherwise be required. 

Waiver Exemptions:

The following purchase and/or agreement types are exempt from the SB1st policy and do not require a Waiver:

Purchases from existing strategically sourced or competitively bid agreements, sole source, design/construction, true emergencies, federal funds, interagency, local government, research sub-awards, higher education institutions, concessions/revenue/reimbursement, and medical and patient care.

Detailed explanations for the waiver exemption categories listed above are available on the UC Staff SB1st webpage.

What requirements must be met? 

The SB1st Waiver must be approved by the appropriate Policy Exception Authority (or designee) prior to making a purchase or contracting with a company that is not an SB/DVBE.


Non-Federally funded awards to SB/DVBEs valued over $100,000 must also be reported using the Source Selection & Price Reasonableness form.

UC policy requires applicable awards not made to SB/DVBEs be documented for audit purposes. Requisitions/POs are the system of record for campus procurement and the supporting documentation must be attached for compliance and audit preparedness. 

Non‐Federally funded goods and services above $10,000 must be purchased in compliance with the California Public Contract Code (PCC) and UC policies, including the UC SB1st policy. UC must use its own documented procurement procedures which reflect applicable State laws and regulations, provided that the procurements conform to applicable Federal law and standards. Federally funded purchases in part or in whole are exempt from this program, but it is encouraged that the University utilize the SB1st program wherever practicable. 

If your request for a waiver is granted, the entire Waiver must be completed prior to submission. 

Who should request a Waiver? 

A Waiver must be completed by the responsible requesting party or department for all applicable orders to substantiate the appropriateness of awarding to a non-SB or non-DVBE. Per UC Policy BUS-43, the Waiver is subject to approval by the delegated Policy Exception Authority, a professional buyer supervisor at UC San Diego.
