Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program

A brief history in the Wisconsin DOT.

The DBE program started with the Surface Transportation Act of 1982, which set a national goal of placing at least 10 percent of federal highway and transit funds with persons who qualify as disadvantaged small business operators. A subsequent act in 1987 included women.*

With a program goal to increase participation of firms owned by disadvantaged individuals in all federal aid and state transportation facility contracts, WisDOT invests $600-700 million annually in federal and state dollars for highway, airport and transit projects.*

These funds translate into millions of dollars in transportation-related contracts and project work for DBE firms, and helps to ensure non-discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, or gender in the award and administration of DOT-assisted contracts as embodied in the Code of Federal Regulations 49 CFR part 26.*

WisDOT has a bevy of informational resources available on their website, including an overview of the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program, eligibility requirements and application to enroll in the program, DBE program contacts, and more.
