The Department of Transportation has implemented new DVBE goal setting procedures on its non-federal aid construction contracts over $250,000.
Effective March 21, 2011, state funded contracts advertised will have the following DVBE goals:
- $1 million and under 5% DVBE goals.
- $1 million and $5 million 3% DVBE goals.
- Over $5 million No goals. DVBE incentive provisions apply.
Bidders are cautioned to use certified DVBE firms performing commercially-useful functions on the contract in order to receive credit towards the DVBE goals or incentives.
Each contract advertisement, Notice to Bidders and Special Provisions contain the DVBE requirements.
If you have any questions about the DVBE goals, please submit a bidder's inquiry.
Attention contractors:If you'd like to pull back your submitted bid to make corrections, make sure you fill out the latest signature card and fax it in to the bidder's exchange. We also have a new release of bid documents form to keep with your bid runner in the event that you need to revise a bid. Both files are available on our Contractor Info Table, under the Bid Opening column.
