CPUC, CPUC General Order 156, Gwen Moore

Meet Dubious Entity “The Supplier Clearinghouse” [ TLR Note: 1) So called “The Supplier Clearinghouse” is a “Commission-supervised” whose primary purpose is to audit and verify the status of woman and minority owned businesses in connection with CPUC General Order 156 AKA “GO 156” — an order which came on the heels of legislation by Gwen Moore forcing utility companies to set aside preferences to racial minorities in area dealing with contracts, employment, and the like. 2) According to YR’s own personal opinion, Proposition 209 rendered GO 156 null and void . Consequently, YR hopes — in his role as “The Party Pooper” and only if justified by law and facts — to file a suit to remedy this travesty of justice. 3) Notice “The Supplier Clearinghouse” unwillingness to share with public names of people who operate entity]

Who Are We?

In May 1988, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) issued General Order 156 (GO 156). Under GO 156, the CPUC required all investor-owned electric, gas, water and telecommunication utility companies with gross annual revenues in excess of $25 million and their regulated subsidiaries and affiliates, to develop and implement programs to increase the utilization of WMBES. Procurement goals of 5% for women and 15% for minorities were initially established, and later expanded to include a goal of 1.5% for service-disabled veterans.

Certification of eligible suppliers was designed to encourage, recruit, and utilize WMBEs by participating utilities.

The Clearinghouse is a Commission-supervised entity whose primary purpose is to audit and verify the status of WMBEs, and to establish and maintain a database of WMDVBEs that is accessible to the CPUC and to participating utilities. The Clearinghouse audit and verification program precludes the need for individual utilities to audit and verify WMBEs with whom they do business.

  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]

  • Writing our obit is a bit premature… 2017/04/06
    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here. We’ve been a bit busy frying other fish.  If you consider yourself a progressive, you’ve already read and possibly even recognized our work elsewhere. We will be continuing those projects and check in here as not to neglect […]

  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]

  • Is the CJA suddenly an unauthorized collective bargaining unit? 2016/10/27
    (JCW is responsible for retitling this press release)(JCW also feels that this is a great reason to surrender your CJA membership and join the ACJ and no, we’re not judges or affiliated with the ACJ in any manner) October 25, 2016 Last May, the California Judges Association crowed that it had been given “a seat […]
