VCTC is committed to encouraging involvement of Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) and firms in all aspects of contracting involvement in all phases of VCTC’s procurement activities, including, but not limited to, fixed-price contracts, regular purchases of goods and services, and special government grant procurement to the maximum extent feasible.

It is the policy of VCTC to ensure that DBEs have an equal opportunity to receive and participate in DOT-assisted contracts. VCTC’s policy objectives are as follows:

  • Ensure nondiscrimination in the award and administration of DOT-assisted contracts;
  • Create a level playing field on which DBEs can compete fairly for DOT-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 DBEs in DOT-assisted contracts;
  • Assist the development of firms that can compete successfully in the marketplace outside the DBE Program.

VCTC will take every necessary and reasonable step under 49 CFR Part 26 to ensure nondiscrimination in the award and administration of Federal Transit Administration assisted contracts.

To qualify as a DBE a firm must meet the eligibility criteria stated in 49 CFR Part 26 and be certified through the California Unified Certification Program which is supervised by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).
