New ODOT DBE Program Goals – Public Hearing Announcement

ODOT has announced new Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program goals. You have two opportunities to learn about the changes ODOT is proposing and to comment (see below).

Specifically, ODOT is proposing amendments to the DBE program waiver. This program waiver allows ODOT to set race-conscious contract goals. The proposed amendments to the waiver from the U.S. Department of Transportation are based upon the results of the 2011 Disparity Study Update.
