The objectives of the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program are: 

  • To ensure nondiscrimination in the award and administration of DOT-assisted contracts in the Departments highway, transit, and airport financial assistance programs;
  • To create a level playing field on which DBEs can compete fairly for DOT-assisted contracts;
  • To ensure that the Departments DBE program is narrowly tailored in accordance with applicable law;  
  • To ensure that only firms that fully meet 49 CFR Part 26 eligibility standards are permitted to participate as DBEs; to help remove barriers to the participation of DBEs in DOT-assisted contracts;
  • To assist the development of firms that can compete successfully in the market place outside the DBE program; and
To provide appropriate flexibility to recipients of federal financial assistance in establishing and providing opportunities for DBEs.
