Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE)
Program Waiver

The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) has approved ODOT's DBE Program waiver modification request for Federal Fiscal Years 2013 - 2015. The modified waiver applies to those groups for whom statistically significant disparities between availability and utilization exist. It permits African American and Subcontinent Asian DBEs to be counted toward contract goals on federally assisted construction contracts. It also permits all DBEs, except DBEs owned by Asian Pacific Americans, for whom significant disparities were not found, to be counted toward goals for federally assisted Architectural and Engineering (A&E) contracts.
