Metro Accepting Public Comments on Disadvantaged Business Goal for FY22 – FY24

0

Metro’s overall Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) target for the three-year period from federal fiscal years 2022 through 2024 is 28% for Federal Transit Administration (FTA)-assisted contracts. Metro plans to achieve its overall DBE goal using race and gender neutral metrics and race and gender conscious metrics. The overall target is expressed as a percentage of FTA funds that Metro Projects must spend during the triennium. The goal methodology used is consistent with the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) DBE Program Final Rule, 49 Code of Federal Regulations, Part 26. The three-year global goal is established to achieve a “level playing field” for that the DBEs participate in the metro. FTA-assisted procurement opportunities.

The proposed DBE Global Goal and Goal Methodology are posted here for review. Metro will accept public comments for a 30-day period beginning May 13, 2021 and ending June 13, 2021. Public comments will be accepted by email at: [email protected] or [email protected]
