DBE Policy

DBE Program Update 2018

The City of Danville has established a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program in accordance with regulations of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), 49 CFR Part 26.  The City of Danville has received Federal financial assistance from the Department of Transportation, and as a condition of receiving this assistance, the City of Danville has signed an assurance that it will comply with 49 CFR Part 26.

It is the policy of the City of Danville to ensure that DBEs as defined in part 26, have an equal opportunity to receive and participate in DOT–assisted contracts.  It is also our policy:

  1. To ensure nondiscrimination in the award and administration of DOT – assisted contracts;
  2. To create a level playing filed on which DBEs can compete fairly for DOT-assisted contracts;
  3. To ensure that the DBE Program is narrowly tailored in accordance with applicable law;
  4. To ensure that only firms that fully meet 49 CFR Part 26 eligibility standards are permitted to participate as DBEs;
  5. To help remove barriers to the participation of DBEs in DOT assisted contracts;
  6. To assist the development of firms that can compete successfully in the market place outside the DBE Program.

The Human Relations administrator has been delegated as the DBE Liaison Officer.  In that capacity, the Human Relation Administrator is responsible for implementing all aspects of the DBE program.  Implementation of the DBE program is accorded the same priority as compliance with all other legal obligations incurred by the City of Danville in its financial assistance agreements with the Department of Transportation.

The city of Danville has disseminated this policy statement to the City Council and all of the components of our organization.  We have distributed this statement to DBE and non-DBE business communities that perform work for us on DOT-assisted contracts.
