Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE)
Program Mission, Objectives & Plan

PROGRAM MISSION:

  • The Oregon Department of Transportation is committed to a Civil Rights Program to encourage the participation of Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE´s) in contracting opportunities.
  • ODOT´s policy is not to discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex and/or national origin when awarding and administering those contracts.

PROGRAM OBJECTIVES:

  • Ensure nondiscrinimation in the award and administration of ODOT contracts
  • Create a level playing field of which DBEs can compete fairly for U.S. DOT-assisted contracts
  • Ensure the DBE program is narrowly tailored in accordance with applicable law
  • Ensure that only eligible firms participate as DBE's
  • Help remove barriers to the participation of DBEs
  • Help assist the development of firms that can compete successfully in the market place outside the DBE Program
  • Provide appropriate flexibility to recipients of federal financial assistance in establishing and providing opportunities for DBEs
