California DBE program

The Office of Business & Economic Opportunity at the (OBEO) California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is the responsible for the state certification of disadvantaged business enterprises (DBEs)

The department has set a 12.5 percent DBE participation goal for contracts that receive federal funding. Part of this goal is achieved through the use of DBE subcontracting goals on individual contracts, which prime contractors must make a good faith effort to achieve.

In addition to requiring good faith effort outreach to encourage the use of DBEs on department contracts, Caltrans hosts a variety of certification workshops, technical seminars, and networking events for DBEs and DBE-eligible firms.
