Iowa DBE program

The Iowa Department of Transportation (Iowa DOT) has, through its Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action (EEO/AA) policies, developed a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program, which is administered by the Office of Employee Services (OES). The Iowa DOT offers a list of common “tripwires”, or repeatedly seen mistakes, that serve to hamper a business’s application to be certified as a DBE. These include but are not limited to not including all requested documents, leaving unexplained blank spaces in the application, and providing unclear titles for the firm’s various officers. Certification as a DBE allows firms to be counted towards the total when a good faith effort needs to be made to reach the DBE participation goal on a Iowa DOT project.
