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 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.
