Cooperative Alliance for Regional Transportation (CART)
DBE Three Year Contracting Goal
It is the policy of CART to ensure non-discrimination in the award and administration of CART contracts; to create a level playing field on which Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBEs) can compete fairly for federally assisted contracts; and to help remove barriers to the participation of DBEs in CART contracts. CART has established a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program in accordance with regulations of the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT), 49 CFR Part 26. CART has established a DBE contracting goal of 3.7% for Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Section 5307 funded programs as authorized by the Federal Transit Act of 1964, as amended, for the Federal Fiscal Years FY2017, FY2018 and FY2019 which run from October 1 through September 30 of the following year.
