DOT&PF promotes opportunities for socially and economically disadvantaged individuals to participate in federally funded highway and aviation projects through the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program.
"This informational event provides a great opportunity for minority and women-owned businesses to learn how they can participate in state DOT&PF projects," said Jon Dunham, DOT&PF's Civil Rights Office Manager.
Events are open to the public and there is no charge to attend.
In addition to ensuring that DBE's can compete fairly for federally funded transportation-related projects, the DBE program checks contractor's compliance with DBE laws and requirements. The program also ensures only eligible firms participate as DBEs and will offer assistance to DBE firms competing outside the DBE program.
Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) applicants must meet specific criteria to participate in the program.
