ODOT Announces DBE Goal

ODOT Announces DBE Goal

Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Goal

Federal Fiscal Years 2014–2016

The Oregon Department of Transportation recently proposed their overall Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) goal of 14.68% for Federal Highway Administration-funded projects. The agency expects 11.5% of the overall goal to be met through race- and gender-neutral measures, and 3.18% through race- and gender-conscious measures in accordance with the agency’s USDOT-approved DBE program waiver currently in effect. This calculation is made in accordance with 49 CFR Part 26. The final DBE goal for federal fiscal years 2014–2016 will be submitted to FHWA for review on August 1, 2013 to comply with USDOT requirements.

The proposed goal and its rationale will be available for inspection during normal business hours at the ODOT Office of Civil Rights for 30 days, effective June 17 through July 17, 2013. ODOT and the USDOT will accept comments on the goals until August 1, 2013. ODOT will consider all comments and quantitative and anecdotal data in determining its final DBE goal, and will post its analysis and final goal here. Written comments may be submitted by mail, fax, or email to:
