LEGAL NOTICE: Notice is hereby given that Portage Area Regional Transportation Authority (PARTA), on behalf of itself is requesting proposals for:
DISADVANTAGED BUSINESS ENTERPRISE (DBE)
Written DBE programs are required for FTA recipients of planning, capital, and/or operating assistance that will have contracting opportunities (excluding transit vehicle purchases) exceeding $250,000 with those funds in a federal fiscal year. It is PARTA’s policy to maintain an FTA-approved DBE program to ensure compliance with 49 CFR Part 26, “Participation by Disadvantaged Business Enterprises in Department of Transportation Financial Assistance Programs.” The purpose of PARTA’s DBE program is to ensure nondiscrimination in the award and administration of DOT-assisted contracts and to create a level playing field on which DBEs can compete fairly for DOT-assisted contracts.
