PROGRAM BENEFITS

The purpose of Caltrans’ Disadvantaged Business Enterprise/Supportive Services (DBE/SS) Program is to increase the total number of certified DBE firms active in the federal-aid highway construction and professional services industries and contribute to their growth and eventual self-sufficiency. Caltrans’ DBE/SS Program will provide services to DBEs and potential DBEs to help develop, or improve, immediate and long-term business management skills as well as increase the DBE firm’s capacity, record keeping, financial, and accounting capabilities. Development of these skills will help expand opportunities for DBE firms to participate in a variety of highway-related work and handle increasingly significant projects.

 
PROGRAM EXPECTATIONS

MiraCosta Community College District will help develop, improve, and increase each participating DBE firm’s capacity, to pursue, prepare, and successfully perform on Caltrans federal-aid highway construction and professional services contracts. This will increase the pool of qualified certified DBE firms active in the industries and contribute to their growth and eventual self-sufficiency within the defined service area.
