The Office of Small Business Advocate (OSBA) advocates the causes of small business and provide small business owners with the information needed to succeed in the California marketplace.
OSBA staff provide assistance to the state's small business community on issues ranging from regulations to procurement. Depending on the issue, staff can refer small businesses to appropriate contacts in State government, business, and service organizations.
OSBA staff also serve on various State interagency working groups and task forces to represent small business interests in state legislation, policy, and procedures.
