The Department of Transportation’s DBE [Disadvantaged Business Enterprise] program provides certain business owners with a marketing tool to increase participation of minorities and women in State and Local transportation related contract opportunities.
Attend this seminar to explore the potential of doing business with the Texas Department of Transportation, Corpus Christi International Airport, and CCRTA, etc. Experts from the Del Mar College Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) will review DBE eligibility and provide practical assistance in getting your applications started. Federal regulations require that state and local transportation agencies receiving Department of Transportation funds establish a DBE program and set goals for participation by DBE certified businesses. If you are a small business owner who feels your firm is qualified for DBE certification, it makes good business sense to explore this seminar.
