The Department of Transportation (DOT) recently published a final rule making significant changes to the agency’s Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program which take effect on May 9. The rule aims to improve the inclusion of small, disadvantaged businesses in infrastructure opportunities; reduce burdens on DBE firms and recipients; foster the growth of DBE firms; and improve DBE Program integrity, among other things.

To help prime contractors and subcontractors who participate, or are considering participating, in the DBE Program understand and prepare for these changes, PilieroMazza’s Jackie Unger and Peter Ford—partners in the firm’s Government Contracts and Construction Groups—present this webinar covering all you need to know.

Learning objectives include understanding the final rule’s impact on:

  • the ins and outs of DBE eligibility and certification;
  • prime contractor obligations when using DBE subcontractors;
  • rules for counting DBE participation toward DBE goals; and
  • other key elements of the DBE Program.
