The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet(KYTC)/Office of Transportation Delivery (OTD) is establishing a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program in accordance with regulations of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), 49 CFR Part 26. The OTD receives Federal financial assistance from the Department of Transportation/Federal Transit Administration (FTA), and as a condition of receiving this assistance, OTD has signed an assurance that it will comply with 49 CFR Part 26. It is the policy of the OTD to ensure that DBEs, as defined in Part 26, have an equal opportunity to receive and participate in USDOT-assisted contracts for public transit services.
In order to increase the involvement of Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE) and small businesses with public transit services, the Kentucky Public Transit Association (KPTA), in conjunction with the Office of Transportation Delivery, will hold a public forum to discuss issues affecting both public transit, DBE/Small Business Firms. We will discuss the new anticipated DBE goal and the basis for establishing the goal.
