The Idaho Department of Transportation (ITD) proposes Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Annual Participation Goals (APG) for federal fiscal years 2018-2020 for the following:
- Federal Highway Administration-Funded Projects: 8.3%
- Federal Transit Administration-Funded Projects: 13.0%
These goals are based on the availability of DBEs relative to all businesses that are currently ready, willing, and able to participate on ITD’s federally-funded contracts.
Please see the attached Summary Sheets to see how the proposed goals were calculated.
A live, statewide stakeholder meeting will be held on July 18, 2017, from 4:30pm MDT – 6:00pm MDT. This is an “open mic” format where participants can come into either ITD headquarters in Boise, or in ITD’s District Offices to talk via video conference to Civil Rights staff about the proposed DBE APG and methodology. A concurrent WebEx meeting will also be set up for participants to listen in or submit comments or questions.
Public comments concerning information in the report as well as ITD’s proposed overall DBE goal will be accepted through July 28, 2017. The public will be able to give feedback and provide written comments:
- in person at the live statewide stakeholder meeting;
- through a WebEx meeting online concurrent with the stakeholder meeting;
