It is Broward MPO’s policy to encourage all qualified businesses to actively participate in the procurement of all Broward MPO-sponsored contracts. The Broward MPO does not discriminate based on race, color, sex, national origin, age, military status or disability. The Broward MPO has established a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program in accordance with regulations of the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT), 49 CFR, Part 26 (as it may be amended from time to time). You are encouraged to comment on the current DBE Program.

DBE Program Description

It is the Broward MPO’s policy to ensure that disadvantaged (DBE) and small (SBE) businesses, as defined in Part 26, have an equal opportunity to receive and participate in USDOT-assisted contracts. It is also the Broward MPO’s policy to:

Important Links
  • Ensure nondiscrimination in the award and administration of USDOT-assisted contracts
  • Create a level playing field on which DBE/SBEs can compete fairly for USDOT-assisted contracts
  • Ensure that the DBE Program is narrowly tailored in accordance with applicable law
  • Ensure that only firms that fully meet 49 CFR, Part 26 eligibility standards are permitted to participate as DBEs
  • Help remove barriers to the participation of DBE/SBEs in USDOT-assisted contracts
  • Assist the development of firms that can compete successfully in the market place outside the DBE Program

The Broward MPO's current DBE participation goal is for 7.0% of federal funds for FTA projects and 10.65% for FDOT's FHWA assisted contracts.

Qualified DBE’s can be found here: DBE Directories of the Florida Department of Transportation
