Disadvantaged Business Enterprise

The City of Bakersfield is a recipient of Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) funds and as a condition of receiving these funds, the City implemented the California Department of Transportation Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program (DBE) Program.  The DBE Program is based on U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), 49 CFR, Part 26 requirements.  It is the policy of the City of Bakersfield to ensure that DBEs, as defined in Part 26, have an equal opportunity to receive and participate in DOT-assisted contracts.
