The intent of the Program is to eliminate barriers for women and minorities participating in contracting opportunities. The program is not a quota or set aside program; it is goal-based requiring good faith efforts to meet goals.
The Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program(DBE) is a vehicle to make it easier for minorities to compete for procurement opportunities. The DBE Program is applicable to projects that are funded with federal dollars received through grants from the FAA, FHWA, or FTA. The DBE Program is governed by 49 CFR Part 26 & 23. BJCTA adheres to the DBE guidelines for federally and non-federally funded projects.
