Jacksonville Small Emerging Business Program

At JEA, procurement decisions are made on a competitive basis and we’re committed to providing fair and equitable opportunities to all vendors. JEA is an active participant in the City of Jacksonville's (COJ) Small and Emerging Business (JSEB) program, which helps to establish and strengthen relationships with small business owners in our community.  

This program helps to create a contracting environment for local small businesses, in which everyone has an opportunity to participate. There are residency requirements for the owner, as well as personal net worth and annual gross receipt limitations.

JEA Vendors network with other Jacksonville Small Businesses at the 2019 JSEB Procurement Summit.

2021 Virtual JSEB Procurement Summit

The Fourth Annual JSEB Procurement Summit was held virtually on August 18, 2021 with over 100 attendees. The focus this year was on Fiscal Year 2022 Bid Opportunities for JSEB Vendors. The summit also highlighted the upcoming bid opportunities with Ryan Companies, the builder of JEA’s new headquarters building. There were two breakout sessions where the attendees could participate in a panel discussion with our Facilities and Water Wastewater groups. Each session had a Category Manager, a Senior Buyer, a JEA Project Manager and Prime Vendor. The featured Prime Vendors included:

  • Eversafe Building Maintenance Corp (JSEB)
  • Jacobs
  • Petticoat-Schmitt 

The breakout sessions offered an opportunity for the attendees to network and ask questions to the panelists. Although this year’s Summit was held virtually, it was a great opportunity to acquire beneficial information and build new relationships.
