Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE)
As a recipient of Federal Transit Administration (FTA) funds, the Broward MPO is required to update its Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Goal every three years. The proposed overall FTA DBE Goal is 6.6%.
Prior to submitting the goal to FTA for review and acceptance, the Broward MPO held a 30-day public comment period until June 4, 2023. Comments were directed to the attention of Norma Corredor, the Broward MPO’s DBE Liaison Officer at (954) 875-0051 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. A free webinar regarding the 2023 DBE Goal was also held on May 25, 2023. A recording of this webinar is available here.
Following these outreach efforts, the draft program, goal, and methodology were submitted to FTA on June 27, 2023. Once the review of this document is complete, it will be uploaded to this page. To view the draft program, goal, and methodology, please click the image below.

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 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:
- 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.
