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)].

  • Help us identify ways to better support small, minority-, and women-owned businesses!
