Prior to being awarded a contract with the City, all consultants and sub-consultants must be registered on the City's Contracts Management and Opportunities Database, Los Angeles Business Assistance Virtual Network (LABAVN), at http://www.labavn.org.
The Port of Los Angeles encourages those businesses that desire contract opportunities with the Port of Los Angeles and other City Departments to register on the LABAVN. LABAVN is a free service provided by the City of Los Angeles and the Mayor's Office of Economic Development. Consultants and subconsultants can view and download information about contractual opportunities in one convenient location as well as find up-to-date certified sub-contractors to complement your project bid or proposal. LABAVN provides access to an industry specific contractor directory for researching, sourcing, and managing contract opportunities for large and small businesses, and for identifying potential sub-contracting opportunities associated with contract awards issued by the Port of Los Angeles.
