Nashua Transit System (NTS) is committed to the effective implementation of the Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE) Program as defined in Title 49 Part 26 of the Code of Federal Regulations entitled "Participation by Disadvantaged Business Enterprises in Department of Transportation Programs".
What is the DBE Program?
The primary goal of the DBE program is to level the playing field by providing small businesses owned and controlled by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals a fair opportunity to compete for federally funded transportation contracts.
The DBE program was created to:
Ensure nondiscrimination in the award and administration of federally assisted contracts
Create a level playing field on which DBEs can compete for federally assisted contracts
Help remove barriers that affect participation of DBEs in federally assisted contracts; and
Assist the development of firms that can compete successfully in the marketplace outside the DBE program
Apply for DBE Certification
First time applicants for DBE certification must complete and submit a certification application and related material to the certifying agency in your home state and participate in an on-site interview conducted by that agency. For more information on DBE Certification, visit the US Department of Transportation's Website.
