COMMENTS, PLEASEStrengthen the Economy, by Catherine Higgins.
UDOT is currently developing the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) goal for the next three Federal fiscal years.
The proposed DBE goal can be found on the UDOT website. Comments may be provided to UDOT by following the directions on the website. The document will be available for review from May 15th through June 20, 2012 and comments will be accepted through July 1, 2012.
Only comments related specifically to the DBE goal and the development of the goal will be accepted. All other UDOT or DBE-program related comments should be directed to the appropriate contact provided on the main UDOT website.
The purpose of the federal government’s DBE program is to increase the number of women and minority businesses active in the highway construction industry. The UDOT DBE Program is funded in part by FHWA. By cooperating with community partners, UDOT can help open the door to growth of small businesses, and in turn, those businesses can contribute to the economic well-being of the state.
UDOT is actively seeking to promote stakeholder participation by seeking comments on the DBE goal so that continued success within the program is maintained.
