Cordoba Corporation Featured in 2019 SoCalGas and SDG&E Supplier Diversity Annual Reports

Cordoba Corporation is pleased to share that we are once again featured in the Supplier Diversity annual reports for Sempra Energy’s two California-based public utilities, San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) and Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas).  These reports are filed with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) annually by SDG&E, SoCalGas and other utilities regulated by the CPUC as required under General Order (GO) 156.  GO 156 established the rules for the CPUC’s Utility Supplier Diversity Program, which has served as a proven model to promote competition and encourage greater economic opportunities for diverse suppliers.

Supplier Diversity is more than just something we do because it’s regulated – it translates into very real bottom line value for the regulated utilities, their ratepayers, the local communities and the State of California.  Cordoba Corporation is honored to be an ambassador of this culture and to be able to partner with SDG&E and SoCalGas in their communities as we support important infrastructure projects and collaboratively partner to invest in the community.

“Diversity is more than just a word at Cordoba — it is intrinsic to who we are and why we are successful,” stated Lucy Labruzzo.  “In fact, more than 60% of our staff are of a diverse background including minority, women and veteran employees.  As we work on some of the largest infrastructure projects in California, each of us brings our unique backgrounds, our unique understanding of our community and our culture as well as technical expertise to work together and solve our state’s very unique energy infrastructure challenges.”

“Our work supporting supplier diversity dates back to 1988 when Cordoba Corporation worked with the CPUC to establish the first comprehensive database of disadvantaged small businesses and developed guidelines for their certification,” stated George L. Pla.  “That effort resulted in the implementation of the CPUC’s Supplier Clearinghouse, which was instrumental in opening doors for increased participation for minority and women entrepreneurs in infrastructure projects. We are proud of SDG&E and SoCalGas for their continued success in “Making a Difference” with their supplier diversity programs, and we are honored to be featured in their reports again this year.”
