Disadvantaged Business Enterprise

Miami-Dade Transit's (MDT) Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program is primarily funded by the U.S. Department of Transportation

Miami-Dade Transit (MDT) is committed to carry out the DBE Program and to meet the stated objectives, including nondiscrimination in the award and administration of DOT assisted contracts in MDT's transit programs; creating a level playing field on which DBE firms can compete fairly, and ensuring that MDT's DBE Program is narrowly tailored in accordance with applicable law.


The objectives of Miami-Dade Transit's Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program, and in accordance with 49 CFR 26, is to ensure a "level playing field" and to foster opportunities in DOT assisted contracts, improve the flexibility and efficiency of the DBE program and to reduce the burdens on small businesses, as well as to identify and help remove barriers to the participation of DBE contractors in DOT assisted contracts and ultimately to assist the development of firms that can compete successfully in the marketplace outside of the DBE program.
