Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Goal
Federal Fiscal Years (FFY) 2014–2016
Notice of Proposed DBE Goal: ODOT proposes an overall DBE goal of 12.29% for Federal Highway Administration-funded projects for FFY 2014–2016. The agency expects 9.61% of the overall goal to be met through neutral measures, and 2.68% 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 FFY 2014–2016 DBE goal will be submitted to FHWA for review on March 31, 2014.
The proposed goal and its rationale are available for inspection during normal business hours at the ODOT Office of Civil Rights for 30 days, beginning February 14, 2014 and ending March 17, 2014. ODOT and USDOT will accept comments on the goal until March 31, 2014. ODOT will consider all comments, quantitative and anecdotal data in determining the final goal, which will be posted here.
Written comments: Submit by mail, fax, or email to: ODOT, Office of Civil Rights, Attn: DBE Program Manager, 355 Capitol St. NE, MS 31, Salem, OR 97301. Fax: 503-986-6382.
