The Caltrans Division of Local Assistance recently released two (2) Office Bulletins related to the DBE Program that affect their federal-aid funded projects. If you are receiving federal USDOT funds from Caltrans, these changes will affect your solicitation and contract language as well as change how these contracts are monitored. The changes address the following key areas:
Additionally, for contracts awarded on or after September 1, 2023, local agencies will no longer be required to use Exhibit 9-F and will now be required to use a new 9-P. The new 9-P requires both the running tally of payment and prompt payment on the same form.
Contact us if you have any questions or would like us to help you incorporate any of these changes into your solicitations or contracts.
