Rock Region METRO has prepared its recommended Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program goal for submission to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Transit Administration (FTA) on Aug. 1, 2023. METRO’s recommended DBE program goal for USDOT-assisted contracts for federal fiscal years 2024-2026 is 2.6 percent. We calculated this goal by examining future spending and the number of ready, willing and able businesses that provide services typically needed on relevant projects.
METRO’s DBE Liaison officer is Emily Yakus, and she will be able to assist vendors on the certification process, understanding the DBE goal, or on how to do business with METRO. To contact Emily, please use the following mailing address:
