As part of the Department's commitment to the Federal Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program, the Civil Rights Division's DBE program certifies businesses capable of performing services and/or providing products which can be credited toward DBE goals on federally assisted contracts. These services and/or products are generally related to construction projects, transit services, Airport Concessionaire (AC), professional and consultant service contracts, funded wholly or in part by FHWA, FTA, or FAA.

The Certification Process is to ensure that only qualified small businesses that are independently owned and controlled by one or more socially and economically disadvantaged persons are certified for this program. Once you are certified, your firm's information will also be in the DBE Certified Directory Database. The bidders on projects must use certified DBE(s) from this Directory to meet project goals.
The Civil Rights Division provides a DBE Supportive Services Program which assists in answering questions regarding your certification; providing technical training in areas of need, such as estimating, plan reading, specification reading, and business techniques; and assisting firms in getting through the ODOT contracting process and DBE certification process.
Good Faith Efforts
When ODOT has established a DBE contract goal on construction and consultant contracts, ODOT awards the contract only to a bidder/offeror who makes responsible good faith efforts to meet or exceed the goal. Click here for information on Good Faith Efforts.
