Public Notices

The Ventura County Transportation Commission (VCTC) is required under federal law to adopt a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) plan and goal for contracting opportunities to be funded with Federal Transit Administration (FTA) funds.  The proposed overall DBE goal for FTA projects is 5% for fiscal years 2018/19, 2019/20, and 2020/21.  VCTC intends to achieve this goal entirely through 100% race-neutral means.

A description of how the goal was set is available here.  Both VCTC and FTA will accept comments on the goal August 1, 2018.  Comments to VCTC can be mailed to 950 County Square Drive, Suite 207 Ventura, CA  93003.
