July 15, 2015 11:23 AM | Anonymous

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is required to submit its overall annual Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) goal and methodology to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and is seeking public comment on its proposed 2016-2018 overall DBE goal and methodology.

 
Caltrans encourages the public to provide comments regarding its proposed overall DBE goal as well as their experience competing for or working on Caltrans projects.  We also welcome suggestions on ways to improve contracting opportunities for DBEs and small businesses.
 
Caltrans’ 2016-2018 overall DBE goal and methodology will be posted for 30 days.  It is available on the Office of Business and Economic Opportunity (OBEO) website at www.dot.ca.gov/hq/bep.  A copy will also be available during regular business hours at the OBEO, located at 1823 14th Street, Sacramento, California.
 
During the 30-day public comment period, comments may be provided via:
E-mail:  2016DBEGoalPublicComment@dot.ca.gov
Fax:  916.324.1869
Mail:  Caltrans OBEO, 2016-2018 DBE G&M, 1823 14th Street, Sacramento, CA 95811
 
The proposed overall DBE goal for federal fiscal years 2016-2018 is 12.5 percent for FHWA-funded projects.  Caltrans used information from its 2012 Availability and Disparity Study (Study) as well as current contract data to establish its 2016-2018 overall DBE goal.  The Study is available on the OBEO website: http://www.dot.ca.gov/hq/bep/docs/2012_Caltrans_Availability_and_Disparity_Study_Final.pdf
 
Caltrans will incorporate your comments into its overall DBE goal and methodology submission; they may also be used to improve the effectiveness of the Caltrans’ DBE program.
