ARRA Contractor Commitments to Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE)

WSDOT works hard to ensure equal opportunity for all businesses that want to participate in federally-funded highway construction projects. We set Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) goals for participation by certified DBE firms that are owned and operated by disadvantaged individuals. The goals represent a percentage of the value of project work for which DBEs should participate. Goals are based on a federally-approved formula that considers the type of project work, the location of the project, and the size of the project and the availability of ready, willing and able DBEs to perform work on the project.

The table below lists the federally funded ARRA projects, the prime contractor for the project, the DBE percentage goal WSDOT has set for each project, and the DBE percentage goal to which the contractor has committed.
