These services and/or products are generally related to construction projects, transit services, professional and consultant service contracts, funded wholly or in part by FHWA, FTA, or FAA.
The Certification Process is to ensure that only qualified small businesses that are independently owned and controlled by one or more socially and economically disadvantaged persons are certified for this program. Once you are certified, your firm’s name will be placed on the Directory of Certified Firms which is available on this website or upon request. Your firm's information will also be available in the DBE Certified Directory Database. The bidders on projects must use certified DBE(s) from this Directory to meet project goals.
