Business Outreach Program

Building Opportunities for Business (BOB) is a program of the Alameda County Public Works Agency (ACPWA) that works to promote economic growth, local employment and business development within Alameda County through maximizing public contracting opportunities to local businesses. We encourage the participation of small and local contractors, consultants, and vendor businesses by ensuring non-discrimination through outreach, education, and technical assistance
