The Northern Virginia Transportation Commission (NVTC) has established requirements for setting an overall goal for Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) participation in federally funded contracts in accordance with regulations of the United States Department of Transportation (DOT), 49 CFR Part 26. This rule requires recipients of Federal funds to use a methodology based on demonstrable data of relevant market conditions and is designed to reach a goal the recipient would expect DBEs to achieve in the absence of discrimination.
