What is the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Certification Program?

Aug 29, 2014 4:04:53 PM / by USFCR posted in 8(a) Business Development Program, Woman Owned Small Business (WOSB/EDWOSB)

What is the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Certification Program_

The United States Department of Transportation (DOT) has created a certification program that focuses on economically disadvantaged businesses and minority business enterprises. The name of the program is called the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Certification Program.  Businesses must be 51% owned and controlled by an economically and socially disadvantaged individual.  The DBE program provides more exposure to government contracting opportunities to small businesses. Once a business is certified in the DBE program businesses are added to a state database managed by the TDOT that is called the Certified Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Listing. Agency officials can then reference this database when seeking out DBE certified businesses.  The DOT has spent over $6 billion on government contracts for the past four years.  The DBE Program proves to be an excellent program for small businesses interested in winning government contracts on a state/federal level.  Businesses must be registered in System for Award Management (SAM) before being awarded government contracts.

Woman-Owned Small Business Contractors Continue to Thrive in Spite of Recent Sequester

Woman-Owned Small Business Contractors Continue to Thrive in Spite of Recent Sequester

Woman-owned small businesses in the 2013 fiscal year have been pulling in contract after contract due to small business set-aside initiative. The Federal Acquisition Regulations (which contains over 2,200 pages of government rules) states very clearly that 23% of all government contracting dollars must be devoted to small business contracts and federal set-asides, especially now that the implementation of the new National Defense Authorization Act of 2013 is underway. The NDAA mandates that the government award 5% of all government contracting dollars to economically-disadvantaged woman owned small businesses and woman-owned small businesses, as well as provide limitless/cap-less contracts to these registered business types. Federal departments have been stressing the importance of these set-asides to their contracting officers more and more each year. As the final fiscal quarter of the year comes to an end, federal officers are beginning to diligently search for properly registered woman-owned small businesses that meet their procurement needs.
