All agencies and departments are required to submit an Annual Improvement Plan when a department fails to achieve mandated SB or DVBE participation in a given Fiscal Year. Separate plans are submitted for each program when necessary. Within DWR, it is the SB/DVBE program manager who is responsible for preparing a comprehensive improvement plan if DWR fails to achieve either or both SB or DVBE program goals.
