IMPORTANT NOTICE: US DOT Announces Final Rule on DBE Programs

The US Department of Transportation has announced a final ruling that strengthens implementation of the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) and Airport Concession Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (ACDBE) Program regulations. The rule updates personal net worth and program size thresholds for inflation; modernizes rules for counting of material suppliers; formalizes COVID-19 flexibilities; adds new program elements to foster greater usage of DBEs and ACDBEs with concurrent, proactive monitoring and oversight; updates certification provisions with less prescriptive rules that give certifiers flexibility when determining eligibility; and makes technical corrections that have led to substantive misinterpretations of the rules by recipients, program applicants, and participants.

Are there any programs or opportunities for DBE’s to bid on Renewable Energy/Solar opportunities?
