The Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program ensures that the Department complies with 49 CFR Part 26 and to remedy past and current discrimination against disadvantaged businesses. The program ensures a “level playing field” and fosters equal opportunity in all Texas Department of Transportation (DOT) and Federal Highway Association-assisted contracts that include highway and street construction.

The DBE Program:

  • ensures non-discrimination in the award and administration of DOT-assisted and locally funded contracts
  • allows DBEs to compete fairly for DOT-assisted and locally funded contracts
  • ensures that the program is narrowly tailored in accordance with applicable law
  • ensures that only firms that fully meet 49 CFR Part 26 eligibility standards are permitted to participate as DBEs
  • helps remove barriers to the participation of DBEs in DOT-assisted and locally funded contracts
  • assists in the development of firms so they can compete successfully in the marketplace outside the DBE program
