Help Identify Cost of DOT DBE Program Compliance

The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) issued a 75-page proposal over a year ago describing about 30 possible changes to the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program for federal-aid transportation projects. Subsequently, AGC and the American Road and Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) submitted detailed written comments, expressing strong opposition to many of the proposed changes. Based on comments received from AGC, ARTBA and AGC/ARTBA chapters and members, DOT has determined that this rulemaking is a “significant” rule and therefore a cost-benefit analysis is necessary before moving forward. DOT has requested further input from the industry and other interested parties. In particular, DOT has asked for the “specific, quantifiable costs and benefits” that would result from some of the proposed changes.

To help generate this information, AGC and ARTBA are asking members to complete a short survey. The original deadline has passed, but has been extended. This deadline may be extended. AGC and ARTBA will tabulate the confidential results and include them in new comments to DOT. A link to the survey is below. Please contact Brian Deery with any questions.
