Contract Goals
The City of Bakersfield will use contract goals to meet any portion of the overall goal that the City does not project being able to meet using Race Neutral (RN) means. Contract goals are established so that, over the period to which the overall goal applies, they will cumulatively result in meeting any portion of the City’s overall goal that is not projected to be met through the use of RN means.

The City of Bakersfield will establish contract goals only on those FAA/DOT-assisted airport contracts that have subcontracting possibilities. It need not establish a contract goal on every such contract, and the size of the contract goals will be adapted to the circumstances of each such contract (e.g., type and location of work and availability of DBE’s to perform the particular type of work).

We will express our contract goals as a percentage of the Federal share of a FAA/DOT-assisted airport contract.
