Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Goal


In keeping with the requirements of 49 C.F.R. Part 26 (Participation by Disadvantaged Business Enterprises in U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) Programs), an overall Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) goal has been developed for DBE participation in DOT‐assisted contracting by the City of Santa Rosa Transit Division during Fiscal Year 2020 through Fiscal Year 2022.

The City of Santa Rosa Transit Division receives funding from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) of U.S. Department of Transportation. The City of Santa Rosa Transit Division's overall DBE goal for 2020-2022 is 9.97% of the federal financial assistance we will expend in FTA‐assisted contracts, exclusive of FTA funds to be used for the purchase of transit vehicles.


This goal identifies the relative availability of DBEs based on evidence of ready, willing, and able DBEs in relationship to all comparable businesses which are known to be available to compete in the Transit Division's FTA‐assisted contracts.

The overall DBE goal reflects staff's determination of the level of DBE participation which would be expected absent the effects of discrimination. A discussion of the methodology for developing the goal can be found in the next section.
