Caltrans DBE Contract Goal Setting

One aspect of the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program that we receive inquiries about is contract goal setting. To help understand the task better, we’ve put together this video to help explain how to calculate a DBE goal for your Local Assistance projects. In the video, we use an example to demonstrate the seven steps to use when setting DBE contract goals:

  1. Classify work
  2. Determine work category codes
  3. Search the CUCP database
  4. Apply DBE factors
  5. Calculate a soft goal
  6. Apply 60% factor
  7. Round to the nearest whole percent
