FHWA’s New DBE Program – Alternative Contracting Methods Handbook

It’s finally here!  The Federal Highway Administration has released its new DBE Program Handbook on Alternative Contracting Methods. According to FHWA, this handbook is intended to be a practical tool for providing effective risk-based stewardship and oversight of the DBE program on program delivery and procurement methods beyond the traditional design bid-build model around which the governing regulations were primarily developed. The Handbook includes not only notable practices, but lessons learned, pitfalls to avoid, tips for enhancing compliance, and a list of helpful resources.
