Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program
Federal Fiscal Years 2014-2016
July 2015 Revision to Program and Policy Documents
On July 15, 2015, Lane Transit District (LTD) presented revisions to its DBE Program and Policy documents to its Board of Directors, identifying a new Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Liaison Officer (DBELO), in accordance with FTA recommendations that the DBELO not be an employee in the finance nor procurement departments of an agency. The Board approved the revisions, and LTD’s new DBELO is Roland Hoskins, Director of Administrative Services.
LTD has established a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program in accordance with regulations of the U.S. Department of Transportation. It is the policy of the District to ensure nondiscrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, or national origin in the award and administration of the U.S. Department of Transportation-assisted contracts. It is the intention of the District to create a level playing field on which DBEs can compete fairly for contracts and subcontracts relating to the District’s construction, procurement, and professional services activities.
Lane Transit District’s proposed overall goal for Federal Fiscal Years 2014-2016 is 4.63 percent (4.63%) of FTA-funded contracting activities, exclusive of FTA funds to be used for the purchase of transit vehicles. Methodology used to formulate this goal is described in the program documents. LTD intends to meet this entire goal using race/gender neutral measures.
