Cal-Duct, Inc. is an approved supplier certified by the Supplier Clearinghouse. The Supplier Clearinghouse is a commission-supervised entity whose primary purpose is to audit and verify the status of woman and minority owned businesses and to establish and maintain a database of woman, minority, and service disabled veteran owned businesses that is accessible to the California Public Utilities Commission and to participating utilities.
California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) requires utility companies with gross annual revenues in excess of $25 million and their regulated subsidiaries and affiliates to develop and implement programs to increase the utilization of woman and minority owned businesses.
