Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program
Partnering with minority and women-owned businesses.
LTD established a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program to create a level playing field where small businesses, owned by minorities and women, can compete fairly for contracts and subcontracts relating to the District’s construction, procurement, and professional services activities. In accordance with regulations of the U.S. Department of Transportation, the District ensures 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.
