Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE)


PARTA’s Federal Fiscal Year 2023 through 2025 Triennial DBE Goal is .42%, which is required by the Code of Federal Regulation 49, Part 26.  The DBE program and a description of how the 2023 goal was determined are available for review between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, at PARTA’s Administrative Office, 2000 Summit Rd. Kent, OH 44240.

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 in which DBEs can compete fairly for DOT-assisted contracts.
