CHP Business Opportunities

Welcome to the CHP

Thank you for your interest in the California Highway Patrol. We look forward to increasing the number of opportunities you have to provide us with the goods and services we need. This brochure offers you a listing of the types of goods and services we require to support our daily operations. Because we are a statewide organization with approximately 10,000 employees, our needs never end.

The CHP is also extremely supportive of small and disabled veteran businesses and is intent on actively seeking partnerships with them. Being certified to do business with the state as a small business provides you with a five percent preference in the bid process. The friendly, professional people in the CHP's Certified Business Advocate Program are ready to assist you in successfully participating in the state's procurement process.

Please review this brochure, find the goods or services categories that best fit your business, and give us a call!
