CALTRANS OVERALL DBE GOAL & METHODOLOGY and WAIVER REQUEST PUBLIC MEETINGS
WHAT IS CALTRANS’ OVERALL DBE GOAL & METHODOLOGY?
Addresses potential discrimination against DBE firms in the award and administration of Federal Highway Administration-funded projects through the use of race-conscious and race-neutral measures.
Determines the percentage of contract dollars that DBE firms would be expected to earn absent the effects of discrimination.
Bases overall DBE goal methodology on results from Caltrans’ 2016 Disparity Study.
WHAT IS A WAIVER?
Ensures Caltrans’ DBE program is narrowly tailored to overcome the effects of discrimination [49 CFR § 26.1(c)].
